This is Why We “Liberated” Iraq?: Your Day in “Religion of Peace” “Peacefulness”

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Another bombshell that will get no main stream media attention.

Thanks a lot george bush you coward.

tyler on April 19, 2010 at 11:59 pm

Iraq is just as bad as it was under the previous government. The only differences now are that Shi’ites are in charge and Iraq is now an ally of Iran. Once we leave, the fun and games will really begin.

sorrow01 on April 20, 2010 at 1:11 am

Not surprised.

Not Ovenready on April 20, 2010 at 1:40 am

Yep. All those checks and balances work out well there, eh? Introducing Western government and regard for human rights requires more than just change the governmental structure… it requires a transformation in the culture. But old habits in Iraq die hard.

NormanF on April 20, 2010 at 2:07 am

Of course the truth is much simpler: the MSM hates America so much that they believe their own fiction.

pat on April 20, 2010 at 2:08 am

Pat its really simple: if Arabs do it to Arabs, no one cares. Let an American or an Israeli so much as scratch the fingernail of an Arab by accident and the media has a field day covering it. Yes, its not fair. But that goes with the perception that Westerners are held to higher standards than the natives – from whom no one expects any good.

NormanF on April 20, 2010 at 2:40 am

This war was wrong from the word go. It was all the result of FBI/CIA STAGED TERROR ATTACKS TO LEAD TO WAR AND THUS POLICE STATE TYRANNY! All the plans of The New World Order.


And financing all this…greedy global bankers like Rothschild and Rockefeller!

Bob Porrazzo on April 20, 2010 at 7:38 am

Take a lesson from democratically elected terrorist Hamas. Democracy is nothing but a guarantee of the expansion of the will of the majority. If they are evil or stupid, their evil or stupidity gets expanded.

Bush fell for this hook, line and sinker.

Americans fought and died so they could help establish a Muslim theocracy.
What an absolute shame, but absolutely predictable.
Any one with the IQ of a plant knew this was going to happen.

Just another war that we look back on and have to admit it was at best a total waste of time but probably even made things worst than it was before.

SMG45ACP on April 20, 2010 at 8:26 am

Israel’s former ambassador to the UN, Dan Gillerman said in an interview in 2008, “When Christians kill Muslims, it’s a crusade; when Jews kills Muslims, it’s a massacre; when Muslims kill Muslims, it’s The Weather Channel. Nobody cares.”

Apropos, I just finish reading “A Time To Betray”, the memoir of an Iranian working for the Revolutionary Guards who was so appalled by what he saw in Evin Prison – the brutality, the tortures, the summary executions of his fellow citizens – that he agreed to work with the CIA, feeding them inside info about what was *really* going on. Usually they hadn’t a clue. He lives in the US now, and has some rather scathing words about the current appeasement policy toward Iran. (Yes, he uses that word.)

Raymond in DC on April 20, 2010 at 8:47 am

This is why no one should ever feel sorry for any Muslim. If they are being tortured by other Muslims, too bad, because those being tortured would do the same thing to anyone else if they had the chance.

Another problem with the war in Iraq: now it seems we have to let in hundreds of thousands of Muslims from that country into America.

JM on April 20, 2010 at 8:55 am

Face facts folks–this is what happens where Muslims rule. This is what our men died to provide, a place where they could have this sort of country.

Look at afghanistan, and the hell hole of a country we’ve propped up there. We need an intelligence check. Yet we hold out hope for the palestinians. Uhuh.

BB on April 20, 2010 at 10:21 am

This guy says it all. HOPE HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT!


Steve on April 20, 2010 at 10:27 am

Why don’t we leave the whole middle east to itself?

Pete Bone on April 20, 2010 at 10:28 am

Gee, it looks like the lefties were right all along.

Norman Blitzer on April 20, 2010 at 11:14 am

Don’t expect the Iraq dog & pony misinformation campaign to cease anytime soon. Your wonderful USA government will proclaim Iraq as a shining bastion of freedom for years to come (until it becomes embarrassingly impossible to deny the impending civil war), and you will be treated to many photos of smiling Iraqis on voting day proudly displaying their purple thumbs. The truth is that Iraq will be a major mess for generations to come, that will make Iraqis long for the good ol’ days. No big deal though, it will only cost you a few $trillion and endless human carnage.

Ace on April 20, 2010 at 11:32 am

Wow, why isn’t Al Jazeera (Fox News Middle East) on top of this important story?

At least there is one positive thing about this. The muslims are killing each other and not us infidels. Maybe we should give them bigger toys to play with – only for the purposes of killing each other. Let’s help them do a century’s worth of good work in one week.

Jarhead on April 20, 2010 at 11:59 am

Never understood why we wanted to get rid of Saddam. He knew how to deal with the Persians. Now, it’s coming back to haunt us, the naive American public.

BK on April 20, 2010 at 12:06 pm

“Another bombshell that will get no main stream media attention.

Thanks a lot george bush you coward.”


Don’t put all of the blame on bush, just look at the pagan sun worshipers, I mean the christian right, who elected him twice and put us into this mess.

INFINITE on April 20, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    INFINITE – don’t put all of us Christian right people into the same catagory as sun worshipers. I didn’t like Bush too much, but he was sadly not just the lesser of two evils, he was also the guy that would have done the least amount of damage to the country when you look at the two pathetic examples the dems put up against him.

    Jarhead on April 20, 2010 at 12:45 pm

Folks I think everybody has figured it out by now.
Muslims cannot live within democracy. They do best with dictatorships. just the facts.

Steve on April 20, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Only if the moderate-muslims in this country would speak out against the radical islamofascist then atleast will have more common sense across the country. So here’s my question, why are the moderate-muslims so damn silent on the radical-islamist, and I think I know why, it’s because we have CAIR and Muslim Brotherhood who are front organizations for radical islam, and if the moderate islamist do speak out against the radicals in their religion, you’ll have these two cabal front groups (CAIR & Muslim Brotherhood), start saying some BS like, “there not real muslims, there not loyal to islam” all of that stupid rubbish, whereas the truth is, is that moderate muslims despies and hates the radical muslims, and I can speak from experience, because one of my friends is a muslim and told me that he hates the radical islamist that hijacked his religion!

Liberalism is a Mental Disorder!!!

Sean R. on April 20, 2010 at 1:24 pm

@ Norman Blitzer,

The Lefties were wrong about putting down Saddam and bringing him under control.

They were mistakenly right about not fighting for Democracy in Iraq. We should have struck some sort of deal with Saddam for our own safety’s sake.

Facts Life on April 20, 2010 at 2:00 pm

The Left hated America and Israel and that’s why it backed the tyrant Saddam Hussein. Let us be clear: freedom and democracy for the Arabs and Iranians mean absolutely nothing to them. That they not outraged at the human rights abuses in Iraq reveal their criticism of all that went wrong in that country has nothing to do with their concern for the Iraqis and everything to do with their opposition to America and Israel.

NormanF on April 20, 2010 at 3:01 pm


Kill them all and let God sort it out.

goldenmike4393 on April 20, 2010 at 3:45 pm

The real problem is not with Muslims, but with the other-worldly ideology of “Neo-conservatism.” Like any other rigid formula for managing human affairs, it ignores history, which is the record of human nature in action.

Bill Kristol, for example, predicted nothing but good would flow from the invasion of Iraq. He dismissed warnings that “the Shia can’t get along with the Sunni” as “pop sociology.” In fact, the Sunnis, Shiites, and Kurds were lumped together into an artificial entity (an old British trick to keep the native population feuding among themselves and more easily managed). No wonder they can’t get along — their national boundaries were designed to ensure they wouldn’t.

As a result, we’ve not only ruined Iraq, but wrecked our own economy and military.

Old Rebel on April 20, 2010 at 4:55 pm

Excellent post, Debbie, for reporting the latest facts on the Iraq War.

I want to comment on one aspect of this post, the part about the MSM’s coverage of the two Abu Gahribs–the first under the Americans starring Lynndie England (hereafter referred to the American Abu Gharib) and the Iraqi version reported on here. I have always regarded the MSM has having made way too big a deal about the American Abu Gharib. Contrast this with this Iraqi Abu Gharib reported here, and the lack of MSM coverage of it–with the honorable exception of the LA Times article linked by Debbie above–confirms my suspicions that the MSM were outraged about the American Abu Gharib, not because they were concerned about the well-being and human rights of the Iraqis, but instead used it as an excuse to bash America. Of course they also apply a similiar double-standard against Israel. NormanF at 2:40am and 3:01 pm posts nailed it on the MSM’s and the left’s double-standards and hypocrisy.

JeffE on April 20, 2010 at 9:58 pm

It’s the “Religion” STUPID!!!!
PLEASE Dont tell me you are surprised.

These people,as are all people who are exposed to the “Holy Koran” are incompatable with civilized societies the world over.
The cause of their GODLESS behavour is their “moral compass”,their “guiding light”, their UNHOLY KORAN, the Terrorist Manifesto of Islamic Sociopaths Inc.
Garbage IN Garbage OUT.

But hey lets all go back to some “in depth” beard stroking and intellectual “self examination” in our quest for “inclusive” moral relativism,that way we wont have to take a stand and will, in all likely hood get a job in the MSM as a “hard hitting social commentator”

From what i see and read it’s five to twelve, or is my watch fast?
