Wikileaks : about jadriya bunker

WikiLeaks Releases Iraq War Archive
BY Ariel SchwartzFri Oct 22, 2010

WikiLeaks, the independent rabble-rousing organization best known for releasing thousands of secret reports from the war in Afghanistan, just offered up its second big archive. The organization released 391,832 documents to the New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde and Der Spiegel so that the newspapers and magazine could highlight the most disturbing information for readers--and there is plenty of that to be found.

According to the New York Times, American soldiers killed more civilians than previously reported--a move that made many Iraqis turn against American troops in the area. One document explains, for example, how Marines shot a father and killed a mother and three daughters at a checkpoint because the family kept driving even after the Marines fired a flare. Another describes the killing of an Iraqi interpreter by an American sniper who mistook him for a militant. In total, more than 15,000 civilians were killed in previously unknown incidents, reports the Guardian.

The leaked documents also detail the gruesome treatment of detainees in Iraqi custody. Soldiers reportedly used everything from metal rods and wooden poles to electrical wires and cables to beat prisoners. One particularly disturbing document describes a case where American soldiers stumbled upon 173 prisoners of Iraqi police:

AT 1600C, 2BCT REPORTS, 173 MOI DETAINES BEING HELD AT AN MOI INTERMNMENT FACILITY NEXT OT THE KARADA DAC HALL. MANY OF THEM BEAR MARKS OF ABUSE TO INCLUDE CIGARETTE BURNS, BRUISING CONSISTENT WITH BEATINGS AND OPEN SORES. MANY OF THE DETAINEES ARE COUGHING AND ARE BEING DESCRIBED AS WALKING WOUNDED. APPROX 95 X DETAINEES WERE BEING HELD IN 1 X ROOM AND WERE SITTING CROSS-LEGGED WITH BLIND FOLDS, ALL FACING THE SAME DIRECTION. ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE DETAINEES QUESTIONED ON SITE, 12 X DETAINEES HAVE DIED OF DISEASE IN RECENT WEEKS.

THE SJA AND IRAQI JUDGE WILL REVIEW DETAINEE FILES TO DECIPHER WHICH DETAINEES WILL REMAIN IN CUSTODY. THE 4-64 AR SURGEON WILL BE ASSESSING THE MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE DETAINEES AND WILL CASEVAC ACCORDINGLY. 0 CF INJ/DAMAGE
FFIR -- REPORTED COALITION FORCES OR ISF MISCONDUCT, DETAINEE ABUSE OR DEATH, OR LAW OF ARMED CONFLICT VIOLATIONS(LOAC)

The reports also detail a much higher involvement by Iran in the Iraq conflict, with Iraq militias receiving training and supplies from Iran. Many of those militias continued a fight with Americans well after President Barack Obama pushed for then opened a diplomatic dialogue with Iran. (Side note: It's a good time to be Jon Stewart, who's conveniently scheduled to interview President Obama next week on The Daily Show--wonder what he'll ask.)

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!
