These 17,000 will be remembered
Record number of prisoners
By Sammy Ketz
UNITED States and Iraqi forces are holding a record 17,000 men and women - most without being formally charged - and with those in Iraqi-controlled jails living often in deplorable conditions, said US and Iraqi officials.
About two-thirds are locked up as “security detainees” without any formal charges in US-run facilities, Lieutenant Colonel Guy Rudisill, the US military spokesman for Iraqi detention operations, told AFP. END QUOTE.
If the occupation of Iraq was a real goer with the Iraqi people, we wouldn't be imprisoning and torturing them. The Bush Regime is indicted for crimes against humanity again & again.
