Reuters, NBC Staff in Iraq Reportedly Abused

Greetings. Reuters and NBC staff have now revealed charges that they were abused by U.S. soldiers in Iraq months ago in manners similar to those with which we are now all too familiar.

After the accusations of abuse against these news organization staffers were reported to officials in January, the U.S. claimed that the charges were unfounded, but it appears that in light of recent events a new investigation into this matter is not unlikely.

The alleged victims say they did not come forward publicly earlier due to the humilating nature of the abuse, but given the release of the Iraqi prisoner photos felt it was now appropriate to do so.
