Congress Sees Explicit Lynndie England Photos

Bump and Update: Among the photos seen by Congress were many depicting Lynndie England having consensual sex with numerous soldiers in front of the Iraqi prisoners:

Shocking shots of sexcapades involving Pfc. Lynndie England were among the hundreds of X-rated photos and videos from the Abu Ghraib prison scandal shown to lawmakers in a top-secret Capitol conference room yesterday.
"She was having sex with numerous partners. It appeared to be consensual," said a lawmaker who saw the photos. And, videos showed the disgraced soldier - made notorious in a photo showing her holding a leash looped around an Iraqi prisoner's neck - engaged in graphic sex acts with other soldiers in front of Iraqi prisoners, Pentagon officials told NBC Nightly News. "Almost everybody was naked all the time," another lawmaker said.

Members of Congress today were provided additional photos depicting abuse of Iraqi prisoners. What did they see? According to the Dallas Morning News:

  • Military dogs snarling at cowering prisoners.
  • Iraqi women forced to expose their breasts.
  • Sex acts between male and female U.S. soldiers and forced homosexual acts between prisoners.
  • A prisoner forced to violate himself with an object.
  • A man beating himself against a wall as though to knock himself unconscious.

"I don't know how the hell these people got into our Army," said Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, R-Colo., after viewing what he called a fraction of the images.
