What a sad indictment of the Coalition of the Willing's efforts to bring peace and freedom to an otherwise suppressed country as was Iraq under the tyrant Saddam's malign fist.

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

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