Frago 242: U.S. Complicity and Cover-Up of Iraq Torture Exposed

On Friday, the whistleblowing web site WikiLeaks released nearly 400,000 classified Iraq war documents, the largest leak of secret information in U.S. history.

Explosive revelations contained in the Iraq War Logs provided further evidence of the Pentagon's role in the systematic torture of Iraqi citizens by the U.S.-installed post-Saddam regime.

Indeed, multiple files document how U.S. officials failed to investigate thousands of cases of abuse, torture, rape and murder. Even innocent victims who were targets of kidnapping gangs, tortured for ransom by Iraqi police and soldiers operating out of the Interior Ministry, were "investigated" in a perfunctory manner that was little more than a cover-up.

Never mind that the Pentagon was fully cognizant of the nightmare playing out in Iraqi jails and prisons. Never mind the beatings with rifle butts and steel cables, the electrocutions,

  • "The truth is" Robert Fisk writes, "U.S. generals ... are furious not because secrecy has been breached, or because blood may be spilt, but because they have been caught out telling the lies we always knew they told."

    Pretty much says it all right there. They will complain, sue, ans probably eventually shut wikileaks down...under the premise that they are risking American lives.
    In reality, the people that are lying about the whole thing are the ones risking lives.

  • The wrong thing that this administration can do is go after any of the wikileaks people and try to assasinate them. With the leaks of the documents out in the woods already, it's gonna cause rage against the countries involved and doing anything to any of the wikileaks people would only show the world that there trying to hide there devilish deeds. Trying to stop assange will only create more people to come forward and take his place. There never gonna win, we are in the digital ages now!
