WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. military's criminal investigation into potential abuse of Iraqi detainees by U.S. soldiers at Abu Gharib prison in Iraq
now includes reports from soldiers that military police took photographs showing soldiers hitting detainees, CNN has learned.
Earlier, several Pentagon officials who declined to be identified by name confirmed to CNN that investigators were looking into the reports -- all
coming from fellow soldiers -- of photographs showing male and female detainees with some of their clothing removed.
It is not clear whether any photographs were taken, but several military police at the prison have been removed from duty until the matter is
resolved, a military source said. The Army's Criminal Investigation Division seized computer drives searching for the photographs and more evidence
Aren't we great?? GOOOO AMERICA!!! Way to make us look good in the eyes of the world!
