Navy vet says he was tortured by U.S. forces

December 18, 2006 - A Navy veteran from Chicago says he was detained and tortured by U.S. forces in Baghdad without being charged. Twenty-nine-year-old Donald Vance was a private security employee in Baghdad at the time of his arrest. He has filed a federal lawsuit against former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.


Vance was never charged and released in July He remains shocked that the U.S. government can treat anyone like he was treated, let alone an American military veteran.

"Regardless of their nationality or their religion, background -- I could believe this was happening to anyone in any place," said Vance.

So the guy's a civilian contractor (a merc) in Iraq. By the way, mercs are the second largest force in Iraq after the US (not counting the resistance, obviously).

He sees his company involved in illegal activity. He becomes a mole for the FBI.

US forces raid the company, arrest him, and torture him.

Nice work!

Vicious and incompetent, a real double whammy.

I hope his suit against Rumsfeld gets a lot of publicity, and goes all the way.
