[WA: The boy to left appears to be sitting in a damp spot - possibly urinated (from fear? of adults.soldiers?) Note semi vertical stripes on his back. Bruises? From being struck with rod of some sort?]

U.S. and Iraqi soldiers load an orphan onto an ambulance for transport to a Baghdad hospital after finding 24 naked and abused boys, ages 3 to 15 years old, in a darkened room without any windows at a Baghdad orphanage. Many of the children were tied to their beds and were too weak to stand once released. A room full of food and clothing that could have aided the children was found nearby. (Photo: CBS) [ WA: This child bears a remarkable resemblence to one of my great-grandsons. I consider my reaction and response had he been so abused.]

The soldiers found kitchen shelves packed with food in the stock room. Instead of giving it to the boys, the soldiers believe it was being sold to local markets. (Photo: CBS) [ WA: Sold to stuff the "caregivers' " pockets - after they had stuffed their faces with plenty of food? Clothing for the boys was also stocked, still in plastic wrappers, and also being sold.]
A suspect is held after U.S. and Iraqi Army forces found 24 naked and abused boys, ages 3 to 15, in a Baghdad orphanage. The Prime Minister’s office directed the arrest of the individuals responsible for the situation. The Ministry of Health began an investigation immediately, sources said.

Two men thought to be guards at the orphange are seen in this photo obtained by CBS News. Three women claiming to be caretakers were also found at the site. (Photo: CBS) [WA: and hanging for these two slimeballs too]

(Photo: AHMAD AL-RUBAYE/AFP/Getty Images) [WA: the resilience of children. This boy, physically/neurologically handicapped, has a smile for his rescuers in spite of the abuse and maltreatment he has suffered. There is no telling the degree and duration of the emotional and psychological trauma these children suffer. ]
[WA: Perhaps I have grown cynical - or realistic - in my old age, but I have some hard views of this outrage.
The boys were ordered transferred from another orphanage by someone in the Ministry of Health because "it wasn't right for boys to live with girls".
The transfer was to a brothel. That is a suitable facility for children?
Question: Did the "someone" in the Ministry of Health have a deal going with the owner of the brothel?
Obviously the "orphanage" was well funded. The cribs are new, very nice, and modern resin chairs are provided. The pantry was well stocked with food and new clothing (still in plastic bags) was provided. Note that there are no sheets, blankets or pillows on the cribs; were they sold in the local markets also?
Nice little racket going here. Was the "someone" in the Ministry of Health getting a kickback?
There are perverts who will pay well to have sex with young boys. What an ideal setup for the owner of the brothel! A lucrative setup, no doubt. So, were the boys forced to serve the brothel's clientele and if so, did the mysterious "someone" get a kickback on that income too? Boys from age 3 to age 15 - take your choice! And even better, only one of the special needs children able to talk so little danger of complaints!
Did the state funding include payments for caregivers' salaries? By having the brothel employees double as caregivers, more pocket money was provided.
A sweet setup for filthy slimeballs. I have ambivalent feelings about the death penalty but in this case of such horrible treatment of innocent, helpless children, I say hang 'em all!
