Has anything really changed for these kids? I don't think so.

Soldiers Uncover Abuse At Iraq Orphanage

More than 20 boys have been found, starved and naked, at a government-run orphanage for special needs children in Iraq.

The harrowing scene at the Baghdad facility reduced some of the US and Iraqi soldiers who found the children to tears.

The 24 boys were found naked and lying on concrete floors, covered in their own excrement, flies and sores. Some were near death.

"I saw children that you could see literally every bone in their body that were so skinny, they had no energy to move whatsoever, no expression on their face," US Army Staff Sergantt Michael Beale told CBS News of the find in the Iraqi capital last week.
