Legendary land of 1,001 detention centers
Buried at the bottom of this report
in the Dec 12 WaPo is the dryly presented news that unidentified "authorities", presumably American,
have identified more than 1,000 detention centers across Iraq.
More than 1,000. That makes it at least 1,001, right?
That little piece of information was in a report on a raid by troops from one Iraqi government body on a detention center run by another Iraqi government body, in Baghdad last Thursday. The raiders discovered 625 prisoners in the detention center, some of whom had been very badly tortured. (Thirteen were taken directly to a hospital.)
And this is the "new Iraq" that the US has brought into the world???
Words fail me.
