Inmates at covert jail suffered routine electric shocks and sexual abuse

A secret Iraqi government prison, where detainees were subjected to horrific abuse and at least one died from his injuries, was described yesterday as being "worse than Abu Ghraib". Its prisoners, who were mainly Sunni Arabs, included a wheelchair-bound British national. Freed captives told the New York-based organisation Human Rights Watch that they were raped, tortured with electric shocks and suffocated.

All had been taken to the covert jail, at Muthanna airfield west of Baghdad, after being arrested by security forces and accused of involvement in the long-running insurgency. Following American pressure, the prison was hurriedly closed last week and its 431 inmates were transferred to the Iraqi capital as reports of torture emerged.

Now I'm P.O'ed. You can't tell me the US didn't know about this prison and/or what was going on there. If they didn't shame on them as a lot-if not most- were put there by the US and allies. They should have had some type of intel from there as I am sure there was US personnel there doing work also.

I don't know what to think anymore. Please get us out of there NOW! Don't stay a part of the problem. The US needs to stand up and say We're Out!!! Seriously. How can we say we are there to help them when this crap goes on?

In case this got missed as I can't believe no one commented on this. Seriously.

If I wrong.... see you off the thread board buddy (story), I tried to get the word out.

It appears the US was still involved with torture of people in Iraq- until about three weeks ago.
