About a dozen American soldiers were guarding the sprawling facility in the weeks after the April 2003 fall of Baghdad when Iraqi looters raided the site, the newspaper quoted a group of unidentified soldiers as saying.
US army reservists and National Guardsmen witnessed the looting and some soldiers sent messages to commanders in Baghdad requesting help, but received no reply, they said.
“It was complete chaos. It was looting like LA during the Rodney King riots,” one officer said.
"We were running from one side of the compound to the other side, trying to kick people out. On our last day there, there were at least 100 vehicles waiting at the site for us to leave," one officer present at the facility in April 2003 told the Times.
