Baghdad’s Real Torturers

By Heather MacDonald

The U.S. military recently uncovered alleged evidence of torture in Iraqi-run Baghdad prisons, including what appeared to be a torture chamber in an Iraqi Ministry of Interior detention facility. The Sunni reaction to these discoveries poses a considerable problem for proponents of the anti-American “torture narrative”: The Sunnis are calling on the U.S. military to correct the situation! “I wish the Americans would go to [the prisons] and find out about it,” former detainee Sadiq Abdul Razzaq Samarrai told the New York Times.
This is bizarre behavior indeed. According to Andrew Sullivan, Seymour Hersh, and other proponents of the “torture narrative,” Americans are the leading sadists in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Cuba. For the Sunnis to ask the Americans to protect them against alleged Shiite abuse would seem to them as delusional as a Jewish prisoner in Auschwitz appealing to Hitler for salvation.
But the Iraqi reaction to the recent torture allegations defies the conventional “torture” wisdom in more ways than one. It turns out that the safest prisons in Iraq are those enjoying regular American oversight. Another former detainee, Amar Sami Samarrai (cousin of Sadiq Abdul), credits his safe treatment to the fact that the Americans had gone through his detention center near Baghdad four times during his 38-day stay, according to the New York Times


  1. This has been circulating here (UK)for a while in the MSM but for all the wrong reasons. The inference being "its all falling apart in Bush and Blairs Iraq"

    OF COURSE the safest prisons are the US run ones. How so called 'degradation' (eg piss taking) is equal to the level of torture these guys might be capable of beggars belief.

    Anyway on a lighter note

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I just love it. Never ever look at somthing in a light that might reflect well on either Blair or Bush...

    Happy Thanksgiving Ali Hope you and your family have a good one.
