The following are External Links related to Abu Ghraib, the large Enemy Prisoner of War (EPW) prison located outside of Baghdah, Iraq, and the alleged acts of brutality perpetrated against detainees by the U.S. and British military and Private Military Corporations personnel entrusted with their care.

"Back around Nov[ember] an OGA prisoner was brought to IA. They stressed him out so bad that the man passed away. They put his body in a body bag and packed him in ice for approximately 24 hours in the shower in 1B. The next day the medics came in and put his body on a stretcher, placed a fake I.V. in his arm and took him away. This OGA was never processed and therefore never had a number."
The passage is also noted in Seymour M. Hersh's "Torture at Abu Ghraib," The New Yorker, May 10, 2004 (Issue): "American soldiers brutalized Iraqis. How far up does the responsibility go?"
