More accounts of abuse start to unfurl.

This time, the Washington Post has the evidence.

Take a look at the second picture in the gallery. Counting the person taking the picture, that appears to be 9 or 10 U.S. soldiers who were milling around... How many more were there that we don't know about?!

From an interview with Sy Hersh, the reporter who broke the story:
HERSH: First of all, it's going to get much worse. This kind of stuff was much more widespread. I can tell you just from the phone calls I've had in the last 24 hours, even more, there are other photos out there. There are many more photos even inside that unit. There are videotapes of stuff that you wouldn't want to mention on national television that was done. There was a lot of problems. There was a special women's section. There were young boys in there. There were things done to young boys that were videotaped. It's much worse.

And of course, there's this story...
"U.S. soldiers .... detained an elderly Iraqi woman last year placed a harness on her, made her crawl on all fours and rode her like a donkey, Prime Minister Tony Blair's personal human rights envoy to Iraq said Wednesday."

Yes, it can get worse.
