Hundreds of Iraqi civilians being held in “Appalling Conditions”

Check out this article at the Guardian (a British news site). Apparently, a large number of Iraqi civilians are being held in makeshift jails, many in very bad conditions. There are also reports of many children being among the prisoners. This is something that you probably won’t see in the mainstream American media. We can’t reveal anything bad about the occupation in Iraq.

There are a couple of good quotes in this article. My favorite is “The message is that things are getting better. But the occupation forces’ shocking handling of civilian prisoners will not be forgotten quickly by the victims. They are one more example of how badly those who planned the war on Iraq failed to plan the peace.”
