Iraq PM Explains 173 Detainees Found Tortured and Malnourished
The revelation about the mostly Sunni Arab detainees by Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari was deeply embarrassing to the government as critics in the United States and Britain question the U.S. strategy for building democracy in a land wracked by insurgency, terrorism and sectarian tension.
Um, woops? What do you even say to this aside from the fact that obviously we need to show them that to run a “democracy” you cannot operate an oppressive theocracy. Hey guys, people tend not feel their vote “counts” when the ruling party can lock up and torture dissenters. Let’s consider that a “Rule of the Day”.
Oh yeah, but to do that, we need to make sure that we don’t have anything like this ourselves…. Like say a “Secret CIA Prison in East Europe”?
