From here, we have this:
Details emerged last night of a shocking video which appears to show a group of British soldiers brutally beating and kicking defenceless Iraqi teenagers in an army compound.
The footage is said to show eight soldiers pulling four teenagers off the street following a riot and dragging them into their army base, before beating them with batons, as well as punching and kicking them.
Followed, of course, by the inevitable "Shocked, we are, that such things could be happening!":
An urgent Military Police investigation was under way last night into the events shown in the video. The Ministry of Defence issued the following statement: 'We are aware of these very serious allegations and can confirm that they are the subject of an urgent Royal Military Police investigation. We condemn all acts of abuse and treat any allegation of wrongdoing extremely seriously.'
Um ... you illegally invaded another country under trumped-up pretenses and killed thousands of its citizens, and now you're worried about wrongdoing? Dude, that horse has kind of already left the barn, if you catch my drift.
