Hundreds escape from Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison after fierce militant assault


www.abc.net.au

At least 500 prisoners, including senior members of Al Qaeda, have escaped after militants launched audacious coordinated attacks on two jails near the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

The military-style night-time assault on the Abu Ghraib and Taji jails left at least 34 people dead, most of them members of the security forces.

No need to worry folks, Al Qaida is no longer a threat, this was to free others, it just so happened that a bunch of terrorists were freed in the process.


Funny how I haven't seen much in the US on this news, I wonder why?

Reports on how many escaped range from 500 - 1000 depending on the source article here and linked below, but one thing is sure, the region just got a whole lot more dangerous after this deliberate and coordinated attack on the prison.

The news cannot report on Al Qaeda as the enemy any longer because we are currently in bed with them re: Syria.

Pay no attention to the jerk behind the curtain.

Dead story... Besides, we all know it's George W. Bush's fault...



I give Iraq 5-7 years before it's immersed in a full blown civil war...

Something tells me that we don't even WANT to know what passes for true hardcore criminal in a place like Baghdad. I'm sure plenty of garden variety criminals went out with the political prisoners on this.

Well, I say we wish them well. The Government, I mean, not the prisoners. Then tell them to call the embassy if they need advice on how to fight the coming crime wave ...but other than that? Hey, they were happy to see us leave and we're happy to be about 98% gone. We ain't coming back. Not for all the cause on Earth, in my opinion.

Next time, perhaps, they'll guard a prison full of combatants as if it were a Military prison holding soldiers with an army out there which DOES want them BACK. After all, it's not 'kinda like that', it's precisely like that.

I wonder if the reason is that it contrasts what the MSM is carrying:

Found an AP story posted by the Houston Chronicle... strange that it is located in their "News > Crime news" section?


Deadly Iraq prison raids free hundreds of inmates

Iraqi security forces locked down areas around the infamous Abu Ghraib prison and another high-security detention facility on Baghdad's outskirts Monday to hunt for escaped inmates and militants after daring insurgent assaults set hundreds of detainees free.

The carefully orchestrated late-night attacks killed dozens Sunday, including at least 25 members of the Iraqi security forces. Insurgents fired dozens of mortar shells and detonated suicide and car bombs, drawing Iraqi forces into firefights that lasted more than an hour.

Attacks elsewhere claimed at least 18 more lives on Monday, many of them soldiers, highlighting the rapidly deteriorating security conditions across Iraq.

Yes, it seems the battle is over and the prisoners have escaped. Personally I feel this will be unknown in the west because many will never get a chance to see this story come to light. I wonder how this will shake up the Middle East.

Been looking for video...

That place probably has more CCTV cameras than the Pentagon did on 9/11.

The gubba-net listens to everything we say and do and won't show us 'anything'.

They will probably head to Saudi Arabia :


A WikiLeaks released memo from the United States Secretary of State sent in 2009 asserted that the primary source of funding of Sunni terrorist groups worldwide was Saudi Arabia.[64]


en.wikipedia.org...

Then either head back to Iraq or Syria.

I bet the real reason that this isn't being highlighted in the mainstream media is that you will now hear the slew of wrongful imprisonment stories come to light. We will now hear stories of torture, rape, and being held indefinitely.

I would agree since we are 'no longer in Iraq'.

And 'we are in Syria'.

Looks like all that military training the CIA gave them paid off. Tax payer money at work, high five!
