A military intelligence analyst who recently completed duty at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq (news - web sites) said Wednesday that the 16-year-old son of a detainee there was abused by U.S. soldiers to break his father’s resistance to interrogators.

he analyst said the teenager was stripped naked, thrown in the back of an open truck, driven around in the cold night air, splattered with mud and then presented to his father at Abu Ghraib, the prison at the center of the scandal over abuse of Iraqi detainees.

Upon seeing his frail and frightened son, the prisoner broke down and cried and told interrogators he would tell them whatever they wanted, the analyst said.

This is of course, just a vicious lie. No good American would ever stoop to such acts.

A refreshing drive in the moonlight? Who wouldn’t enjoy that, those crazy Iraqis obviously don’t know what fun is.

Really, it’s just a little hazing! What potential Skull and Bones member hasn’t been stripped naked and driven around the countryside in the back of a pickup truck?

Has anyone heard what Rush Limbaugh has been saying about all of the mounting evidence? Has he backed off his frat-boy rhetoric?

Cherub? Bueller? Anyone?
