Hersh and horror

Our friends at Sadly, No! have audio of a recent Sy Hersh speech. Among his sickening updates:

Seymour Hersh says the US government has videotapes of boys being sodomized at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

"The worst is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking," the reporter told an ACLU convention last week. Hersh says there was "a massive amount of criminal wrongdoing that was covered up at the highest command out there, and higher."

Presumably, the soldiers in question we're gay--because apparently we cause problems with "unit cohesion." If only there had been less cohesion around a system that jettisoned any last scrap of humanity the US might have still enjoyed in the midst of a war!

I just got finished watching the whole streamed video of the ACLU thing, linked from the original post—quite amusing, aside from what Hersh had to say. Watch it if you have the bandwidth and time.

I guess I could offer a bit more than that: first is radio commentator Sandra Tsing Loh, talking about what followed after her use in a broadcast of a word disliked by the FCC shortly after the infamous NFL show... Next is filmmaker John Sayles with several clips of his satyrical new film Silver City, with a candidate character who is curiously familiar. Then Seymour Hersh. Lastly is some very funny stuff from Greg Proops, most famous for his appearances on Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
