FRONTLINE INTERVIEWS




From 2005 to 2006 Horst was deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army 3rd Infantry Division, responsible for security in and around Baghdad. He recounts his discovery of a secret Ministry of Interior detention/torture center holding 169 detainees, nearly all Sunni, many tortured. It was another indicator of the extent to which militia forces had infiltrated this key ministry, which is in charge of Iraq's national police. This is the edited transcript of an interview conducted on Feb. 9, 2007.


Interview Abdul Aziz al-Hakim

Shi'ite cleric Abdul Aziz al-Hakim heads the Shi'ite SCIRI party (Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq) and he is the main rival of powerful Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. After spending 20 years in Iran leading the 10,000-man Badr Corps, an anti-Saddam militia, Hakim and his older brother, Ayatollah Muhammad Baqr al-Hakim, ended their exile after Saddam's fall in 2003. Hakim's brother was considered by many to be Iraq's new leader. But three months after the Hakims' return, Sunni insurgents detonated a car bomb outside the holy Shi'ite shrine in Najaf, killing his brother. The Shi'a never forgot.Hakim's Shi'ite party won a majority in parliament in the January 2005 elections and he quickly placed party members and Badr militiamen in top government posts. He selected one of his party's top deputies, Bayan Jabr, to head up the Ministry of Interior. Jabr started restaffing the ministry's commando units, largely Sunni, with Badr Corps commanders. This is the edited transcript of an interview conducted Nov. 15, 2006, and is translated from Arabic. Editor's Note: FRONTLINE previously interviewed Hakim in December 2003.


Interview Bayan Jabr


A top deputy in the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), a major Shi'ite political party, Jabr was appointed minister of interior after the Iraqi elections in January 2005. After his appointment, allegations surfaced that the Ministry was serving as cover for Shi'ite militia forces bent on eliminating Sunni rivals. Jabr denies this and says his forces were focused only on taking out terrorists and insurgents. This is the edited transcript of an interview conducted on Nov. 21, 2006.

وزير الداخلية في المؤتمر الصحفي حول فضيحة الجادرية
No-one was beheaded, no-one was killed
Bayan Jabr Iraqi Interior Minister


بيان جبر صولاغ : ان من قام بجريمة السجون السرية في منطقة الجادرية هم أزلام النظام السابق ، الذين استطاعوا ان يتغلغلوا بيننا بدون ان نشعر ، ويتقلدوا اعلى المناصب بدون ان نعرف ، اما نوعية المعتقلين فهم وان كانوا ارهابيين بعثيين ولكن لا يعني هذا ان يتعرضوا للتعذيب !!
( يعني المعتقلين بعثيين والسجانين والجلادين كذلك بعثيين )

All for Torture, and Torture for All!

the Washington Times reported today. “Maj. Gen. Hussein Kamal, deputy interior minister said the detainees also included Shiites, Kurds and Turkmen.”
Translation: No bias here. We’re equal opportunity torturers!
