This story of Iraqi gays will not get coverage

"Two gay Iraqi refugees sparked astonishment at a LGBT meeting in Lebanon when they accused US soldiers of committing atrocities against gay Iraqi civilians. An audience at the Human Rights Campaign headquarters last Friday was shown graphic images of beheaded corpses and photographs which apparently depicted US soldiers preparing to execute gays. One of the men, who used the name Hussam, said US soldiers displayed signs such as 'F**k Off Fags' outside their barracks." (thanks Souheil)
