 Das duemsste war wohl, das man Nichts aus den Erfahrungen u.a. aus dem Balkan gelernt hatte und die komplette Verwaltung und die Militaers wie Polizei entlassen hatte, womit jede Ordnung, inklusive Justiz vernichtet war. Dafuer arbeitete man nur mit Kriminellen zusammen und Moerdern und verkaufte das wie in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Albanien, Montenegro als Demokratie bringen.

Wenn ein Krimineller hurra Amerika ruft, darf er alle Verbrechen begehen, inklusive Drogen- Waffen- Frauen Handel, denn bist Du der Feind meines Feindes, bist Du mein Freund. Zitat von Horst Telschik, als er die LIeferung von Gas Fabriken an Saddam rechtfertigte!

By August 31st there had been ninety six executions in 2012, with twenty six people reportedly being executed on both the 27th and 29th August. Few details of those executed or their identities were released. They are simply the disappeared in the the tradition of all despots. Iraq: “… has a huge problem with torture and unfair trials …”, Human Rights Watch, who produced the Report, pointed out.

Thousands of women are detained and subject to near routine torture and rape. They are often held with their children and even with infants….

An Important Report on Iraqi Prisons and Detainees

By Ibrahim Ebeid

January 2, 2013

South Liberation Movement of Iraq through its Human Rights Office issued its annual report for the year 2012. We thank Dr.Abdul Hussein Abbas , an Iraqi professor and activist who lives in exile for sending us the report in Arabic. The Iraq Palestine Committee took the highlights of this report to let the West and Human Rights Organization know about the inhumane situation and the suffering of the Iraqi people under Occupation and sectarian regime installed by the United States and Iran.

Mr. Awad Abdan Chairman of the Movement for the Liberation of the South supervised the report, in the introduction he stated: We are attempting through this report to make some efforts to highlight several facts about Iraqi prisons which we call „Holocaust“ or „corridors of executions“, in this research we introduce to you the names of these prisons and population and reveal their locations and most importantly give the figures for the imprisoned. According to the report, Human Rights Organizations do not know how many secret jails are in Iraq and do not know their locations or what is happening inside these notorious jails . There are many jails in Iraq some are still under the US occupation Forces and some are under the Ministry of interior or under the various militias of the sectarian parties or under the militia under Iran inside Iraq.

Torture to death

Many prisoners and detainees were brutally tortured and violently beaten to death, for instance, Ba’ath Ali Abdullah, a young man, a prisoner in Al Taji prison; he was exposed to torture many times and without any reason except for his name which was not liked by his jailers. He was frail and very sick with high blood pressure and ulcers in the stomach, beside the torture he was succumbed to , he was prevented from taking any treatment or medicine. One day he asked the jailers for treatment, they took him out of his cell, and subjected him to brutal violence, electric shocks until he dropped dead. This crime took place recently. His story is well known to the Iraqis, an hour after he was murdered, the prison administration spread a rumor that he died from cardiac arrest. His body was released three days later after his parents were forced to sign a paper that he died of the stated reason and not by torture. The wife of victim told the Human Rights Office of the Liberation Movement that a gang of the sectarian army harassed her and her children and the women who were giving condolences to her; she stated also that she is afraid for her life and for her children, and she wants to leave the house.

Due to the secrecy and the blackout of the Media in Iraq no Human rights organization knows the number of prisons in Iraq, and we do not know the exact number of prisoners. There are a large number of Sectarian Militia prisons beside the occupation prisons; the above statistic is a drop in the bucket.

The Establishment of Death Squads in Iraq

US sponsored death squads were recruited in Iraq starting in 2004-2005 in an initiative launched under the helm of the US Ambassador John Negroponte, [image: right] who was dispatched to Baghdad by the US State Department in June 2004.

Negroponte was the “man for the job”. As US Ambassador to Honduras from 1981 to 1985. Negroponte played a key role in supporting and supervising the Nicaraguan Contras based in Honduras as well as overseeing the activities of the Honduran military death squads.

“Under the rule of General Gustavo Alvarez Martinez, Honduras’s military government was both a close ally of the Reagan administration and was “disappearing” dozens of political opponents in classic death squad fashion.”

In January 2005, the Pentagon, confirmed that it was considering:

” forming hit squads of Kurdish and Shia fighters to target leaders of the Iraqi insurgency [Resistance] in a strategic shift borrowed from the American struggle against left-wing guerrillas in Central America 20 years ago”.

Under the so-called “El Salvador option”, Iraqi and American forces would be sent to kill or kidnap insurgency leaders, even in Syria, where some are thought to shelter. …

Hit squads would be controversial and would probably be kept secret.

The experience of the so-called “death squads” in Central America remains raw for many even now and helped to sully the image of the United States in the region.

Then, the Reagan Administration funded and trained teams of nationalist forces to neutralise Salvadorean rebel leaders and sympathisers. …

John Negroponte, the US Ambassador in Baghdad, had a front-row seat at the time as Ambassador to Honduras from 1981-85.

Death squads were a brutal feature of Latin American politics of the time. …

In the early 1980s President Reagan’s Administration funded and helped to train Nicaraguan contras based in Honduras with the aim of ousting Nicaragua’s Sandinista regime. The Contras were equipped using money from illegal American arms sales to Iran, a scandal that could have toppled Mr Reagan.

The thrust of the Pentagon proposal in Iraq, … is to follow that model …

It is unclear whether the main aim of the missions would be to assassinate the rebels or kidnap them and take them away for interrogation. Any mission in Syria would probably be undertaken by US Special Forces.

Nor is it clear who would take responsibility for such a programme — the Pentagon or the Central Intelligence Agency. Such covert operations have traditionally been run by the CIA at arm’s length from the administration in power, giving US officials the ability to deny knowledge of it.  (El Salvador-style ‘death squads’ to be deployed by US against Iraq militants – Times Online, January 10, 2005, emphasis added)


Negroponte also brought into the team one of his former collaborators Colonel James Steele (ret) from his Honduras heyday:

Under the “Salvador Option,” “Negroponte had assistance from his colleague from his days in Central America during the 1980′s, Ret. Col James Steele. Steele, whose title in Baghdad was Counselor for Iraqi Security Forces supervised the selection and training of members of the Badr Organization and Mehdi Army, the two largest Shi’ite militias in Iraq, in order to target the leadership and support networks of a primarily Sunni resistance. Planned or not, these death squads promptly spiralled out of control to become the leading cause of death in Iraq.

Intentional or not, the scores of tortured, mutilated bodies which turn up on the streets of Baghdad each day are generated by the death squads whose impetus was John Negroponte. And it is this U.S.-backed sectarian violence which largely led to the hell-disaster that Iraq is today. (Dahr Jamail, Managing Escalation: Negroponte and Bush’s New Iraq Team,., January 7, 2007)

“Colonel Steele was responsible, according to Rep. Dennis Kucinich for implementing  “a plan in El Salvador under which tens of thousands Salvadorans “disappeared” or were murdered, including Archbishop Oscar Romero and four American nuns.”

Upon his appointment to Baghdad, Colonel Steele was assigned to a counter-insurgency unit known as the “Special Police Commando” under the Iraqi Interior Ministry” (See ACN, Havana,  June 14, 2006) 

Reports confirm that “the US military turned over many prisoners to the Wolf Brigade, the feared 2nd battalion of the interior ministry’s special commandos” which so happened to be under supervision of  Colonel Steele:

“US soldiers, US advisers, were standing aside and doing nothing,” while members of the Wolf Brigade beat and tortured prisoners. The interior ministry commandos took over the public library in Samarra, and turned it into a detention centre, he said.  An interview conducted by Maass [of the New York Times] in 2005 at the improvised prison, accompanied by the Wolf Brigade’s US military adviser, Col James Steele, had been interrupted by the terrified screams of a prisoner outside, he said. Steele was reportedly previously employed as an adviser to help crush an insurgency in El Salvador.” (Ibid, emphasis added)

Another notorious figure who played a role in Iraq’s counter-insurgency program was Former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik  [image: Bernie Kerik  in Baghdad Police Academy with body guards] who in 2007 was indicted in federal court on 16 felony charges.

Kerik walks amidst a phalanx of bodyguards during visit to the Police Academy in Baghdad, July 2003.

Kerik had been appointed by the Bush administration at the outset of the occupation in 2003 to assist in the organization and training  of the Iraqi Police force. During his short stint in 2003, Bernie Kerik –who took on the position of interim Minister of the Interior– worked towards organizing terror units within the Iraqi Police force: “Dispatched to Iraq to whip Iraqi security forces into shape, Kerik dubbed himself the “interim interior minister of Iraq.” British police advisors called him the “Baghdad terminator,” (Salon, December 9, 2004, emphasis added)

Under Negroponte’s helm at the US Embassy in Baghdad, a  wave of covert civilian killings and targeted assassinations had been unleashed. Engineers, medical  doctors, scientists and intellectuals were also targeted.

Author and geopolitical analyst Max Fuller has documented in detail the atrocities committed under the US sponsored counterinsurgency program.
