Afghan Boys Allegedly Abused At Bagram “Black Prison”

Posted by Derrick Crowe on January 10th, 2010

More allegations of abuse have surfaced regarding U.S. forces in Bagram, Afghanistan. This time, the victims were teenage boys held at a secret, U.S.-Special-Operations-Forces-run facility.

The Washington Post reports that the two boys, “Issa Mohammad, then 17, and Abdul Rashid…younger than 16,” described being “punched and slapped in the face, photographed naked and deprived of sleep while being held in solitary confinement,” and being “forced…to look at pornography.”

In late 2009, Brave New Foundation interviewed two former prisoners of the main Bagram Air Base facility, brothers Noor and Abdul Raqeeb, who also described abusive treatment. The habeus corpus petition filed on Abdul Raqeeb’s behalf by the International Justice Network alleges he was subjected to “torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment, and outrages upon his personal dignity.” No charges were ever filed against them, nor any explanation given for their imprisonment.

  2. Sick and tired says:

    This is the military industrial complex we were warned about.
    Dick Cheney is the personification of the “war machine” He and Haliburton have waged war, made billions of dollars and then move the offices of Haliburton of shore and pay no taxes. Dick Cheney should be in prison for the rest of his life. I wonder if the “Christmas day bomber” was “let through” the system to see Obama fail?

    I could not be more ashamed of my country. What have we turned into? Gassing jews was more humane than this crap.

    Bucky you are an idiot. They are vitctims too you moron.No jobs, no education. Use your peanut brain. That is one digsuting comment you made.

  5. Checkmoot says:

    What is “terrorism”. What Al Qaida did to us, or what we have done to the people of Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan. Ther were no Palestinians, Iraqis or Afghans on the planes that flew on 9/11. A columnist in our local paper wrote, about terrorists, they are over here because we are over there. Maybe if we had kept our military here, instead of there, there would have been no 9/11.

    I AGREE FUCK THE TROOPS IF YOU STUPID FUCKS JOIN THE CRIMINAL MILITARY SYSTEM THEN YOUR ASS DESERVES TO BE 6FT UNDER! NO WONDER THE WORLD HATES MERRIKANS!!! THERE FUCKING IDIOTS!

    Charming post.

  11. BrooklynRider says:

    You have a total disconnect wit reality.

    Our troops are OUR troops. The orders they are receiving and the strategies they must follow come from their commanders and, ultimately, the commander-in-chief. Redirect your anger in the appropriate direction.

  12. BrooklynRider says:

    If psychological wafare can be used against enemies, no doubt that psychological manipulation can (and is) being used against Americans.

    I take exception to you singling out a “military industrial complex”. What we are dealing with is American corporate-fascism. War serves the financial goals of many, many American corporation – including Halliburton.

    CHARMING OR FACTUAL! PEACE WILL ONLY COME WHEN PEOPLE WAKE UP!:)

    If I were trying to manipulate public opinion against any military force, this is the story line I would use. It would be effective whether or not true and whether or not evidence of ANY kind was provided.

  16. holly homan says:

    I thought Obama said the torture stopped with him. So why is it still happening? If we want to put a stop to terrorist attacks, why don't we stop this sort of behavior? This is what causes the hatred against us.

  17. Toni says:

    I couldn't agree more – we are doing nothing but pissing them off even more…we will NEVER get to the bottom of this.

  18. Hal O'Leary says:

    I would suggest that the 'Brave New Foundation' may not be so brave, otherwise they would not lend legitimacy to the illegal and imoral incursion into Afghanistan by refusing to call it what it is. We need no further proof of its illegality than the admission by the FBI that they do not have hard evidence to charge bin Laden for 9/11.

  19. Most says:

    The content of the post is very well, from here I know much about sports knowledge. It can provide a lot of the latest sports news. I love this post. By the way I know some about websites which content is also very well. Such as XXXXXXX. you can go and see!

  21. Oleary37 says:

    Abuse is nothing but adding insult to injury. The crime is the incursion into Afghanistan in the first place. The FBI admits they do not have “hard evidence” for bin Laden's involvment in 9/11. The Taliban offered to extradite bin Laden to a neutral country in exchange for proof of his involvement. It was never provided by the Bush administration. Thus the bombing and invasion of a a sovenign nation is a war crime and a crime against humanity. Nothing could be cleared and nothing has been done to hold the criminals accountable. I fear that focus on anything but these crimes only enhances the probability that the real culprits will go scott free.
