BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Abu Ahmed says he was there: An Iraqi held prisoner at Abu Ghraib by the American military when inmates were abused.
He says he was kept naked and saw other naked inmates stacked onto a pile while photos were taken, photos that would become public and bring shame to the United States.
The pain of the past few years is clearly etched on the man's face and equally obvious as he talks. It began October 1, 2003, he says, when U.S. troops came to his home and detained him during a sweep of his neighborhood.
The next day, he was processed and put into Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad.
"They made us take off all our clothes, even our underwear," recalled the man who is afraid to reveal his identity, instead offering up the alias of Abu Ahmed.

CNN. A name you can trust... for propaganda.
“They made us take off all our clothes, even our underwear,”
“I’ve never changed my underwear... this was an outrage!”
CNN LOL who would have guessed
“He says he was kept naked and saw other naked inmates stacked onto a pile while photos were taken”
...boo f’n hoo! Better to be naked and seeing your fellow ragheads naked than to burn alive, jump from 80 stories or die on impact at the WTC, isn’t it pussyboy?!
I’d like to ask the ex-inmate how many he killed or helped to kill for his cause?
Would he prefer to have taken immediate delivery on his pile of virgins or maybe breathed a while longer? I guess we know the answer to that one. He’s still breathing, huh.
So, your point is?
The guy is lucky, he still has his head, so he can talk.. a lot of people were not so lucky..
This crybaby and the nits at CNN ought to watch a few episodes of “Locked up Abroad.”
I question the timing.
Hey, didn’t they have the guys from Gitmo to keep it on point?
Nevermind, this is the station that ignored Saddam gassing villages so they could keep an office there, and show sniper head shots killing our troops on TV.
Knowing the journalistic standards at CNN, I won’t be surprised if ‘Abu Ahmed’ turns out to be a fraud.
“this is the station that ignored Saddam gassing villages “
I hate the bigoted media!
Count on CNN to put an Anti-American slant on it. Fact is what those soldiers were doing was contrary to Army regulations and its field manual at the time, which is why the Army put the perps in jail.
So, I guess the presstitutes' view is if Obama won't give 'em the pix they want, they'll just do Abu Graib again. Jerks.
And the damage is done. CNN-Obama has just brought Abu Ghraib back into the consciousness of The Sheep.
Funny, this guy’s memories exactly match the pictures that were released but reveal nothing new.
Lets see, no panties, 09/11, 09/11, no panties.
Wow, that is a tough one...
I guess these guys never went to junior high and high school and had gym class. We didn’t wear panties in there while we were showering.
I will say, that some of the guys would once in a while pick on another guy, and oh the humanities... it may have actually involved other discomforts.
I actually saw some of this. One day a guy’s clothes were tossed in the shower and he couldn’t change into dry clothes. I saw this with my own eyes. Another time we saw other guys hiding a guy’s shoes. Again, I was forced to watch as they did this. One day a guy got mad at another guy who had made a pass at his girlfriend, and poked him in the eye. I saw this too. One day in the cafeteria, I saw some guy steal another guy’s biscuit. Now that was tough.
We all lived to laugh about it later. Waking up in a cold sweat from the nightmares caused by those days subsided right after the events. Oh wait, I never had them.
I guess the real problem is that while they spell it ‘tough guy’ in Iraq, we spell it ‘wuss’ over here.
CNN the Islamist network. The other thing is if you watch CNN you would think 70% of the population is African American. Every story is about an AA person and I never watch it. I get stuck seeing it in airports. I went to a McDonalds months ago because I never go in a MCD and it was spewing it’s propaganda there too.
CNN is unwatchable.
