Remember the non-stop outrage over human pyramids and hoods at Abu Ghraib? Well, it wasn’t just much ado about nothing, it was much ado about infidels.
You see, the Iranian-controlled Shi’ite Muslim barbarians American soldiers died to “liberate” now have their own Abu Ghraib for the Sunni Muslim barbarians from whom we “liberated” them. And because its Iraqi Muslims actually exacting real, brutal torture on Iraqi Muslims, the world doesn’t care. Maybe we should slap some U.S. Army uniforms on the Shi’ite torturers in charge and force them to treat their torturees nicely, and then it will get media attention and worldwide outrage. Lynndie England’s crime is that she played for the wrong team and treated the Iraqis too well. If only she’d become a voting, purple-ink-stained Shi’ite, she’d get away with far more than pics with unattractive naked men.
Oh, and remember Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens’ claim that these Iraqi “freedom-lovers” adore democracy more than we do? Well, here’s how they democratically torture their fellow Muslims now that they are in control (with Iran pulling the puppet strings). Ain’t “democracy” grand? Yup, several thousand U.S. soldiers died so Shi’ite Muslims in Iraq could do this to Sunni Muslims in Iraq, instead of the other way around. Just love what those purple fingers voted for: the clash of non-civilizations.
Hundreds of Sunni men disappeared for months into a secret Baghdad prison under the jurisdiction of Prime Minister Nouri Maliki’s military office, where many were routinely tortured . . . .
The men were detained by the Iraqi army in October in sweeps targeting Sunni groups in Nineveh province . . . . The provincial governor alleged at the time that ordinary citizens had been detained as well, often without a warrant.
Worried that courts would order the detainees’ release, security forces obtained a court order and transferred them to Baghdad, where they were held in isolation. Human rights officials learned of the facility in March from family members searching for missing relatives. . . .
The alleged brutal treatment of prisoners at the facility raised concerns that the country could drift back to its authoritarian past.
“Could drift”? Uh, clearly, it’s already there.
Inspectors said they found that the 431 prisoners had been subjected to appalling conditions and quoted prisoners as saying that one of them, a former colonel in President Saddam Hussein’s army, had died in January as a result of torture.
“More than 100 were tortured. There were a lot of marks on their bodies,” said an Iraqi official familiar with the inspections. “They beat people, they used electricity. They suffocated them with plastic bags, and different methods.”
An internal U.S. Embassy report quotes Salim as saying that prisoners had told her they were handcuffed for three to four hours at a time in stress positions or sodomized.
“One prisoner told her that he had been raped on a daily basis, another showed her his undergarments, which were entirely bloodstained,” the memo reads.
Ladies and Gentleman, The Religion of Peace Has Entered The Building!
Some described guards extorting as much as $1,000 from prisoners who wanted to phone their families, the memo said. . . .
Maliki defended his use of special prisons and an elite military force that answers only to him.
Hey, I think we have cause for a new Easter. Saddam Hussein has arisen from the dead. And, he’s come back as a Shi’ite.
So, what was that “The Who” sang? New Boss . . . Same as the Old Boss. Yup, that’s about right. The only thing missing: the outrage over this. Good for the Los Angeles Times’ Ned Parker and his editors for having the guts to report on what I warned would happen and was happening in this nation of Bret Stephens’ and the Wall Street Journals’ new “democrats.”
The base belongs to the Baghdad Brigade and the Counter-Terrorism Force, elite units that report to the prime minister and are responsible for holding high-level suspects. . . .
According to the U.S. Embassy report and interviews with Iraqi officials, two separate investigative committees questioned the detainees and abused them. During the day, there were interrogators from the Iraqi judiciary. In the late afternoon they came from the Baghdad Brigade.
The embassy report says that at least four of the investigators from the Baghdad Brigade are believed to have been indicted for torture in 2006. The charges against them at the time included selling Sunni Arab detainees held at a national police facility to Shiite militias to be killed.
In December, the Human Rights Ministry asked the judiciary to investigate Baghdad Brigade interrogators over allegations of torture at Camp Honor, but hasn’t received an answer, Iraqi officials said. . . .
Some Iraqis with knowledge of the security apparatus say they are worried that nothing will really change.
Ya think? Of course, will change. Nothing has changed. No matter how many fancy, expensive Armani suits the Iraqi Shi’ites in charge wear, they are simply animals of the lowest order.
YAY! Democracy worked! Our soldiers-thousands of them died so that Iraqis could be free. The surge worked. Democracy happened. Yada, yada, yada.
So many empty, false slogans. So much bull dung, you might actually be able to grow something in this desert. Nah. Wishful thinking. This is, after all, the Muslim world. Nothing grows here . . . except the continuing regression of the human species.
