Abu Graib Prisoners Want Americans Back

Since the Americans have turned over control of Abu Graib to the Iraqi's, the terrorists now want the Americans back. Are we surprised? Those evil, murderous, torturers known as the U.S. military were actually humane to these prisoners.

The witness said that even in the thieves' section prisoners were being treated badly. "Someone was shouting 'Please help us, we want the human rights officers, we want the Americans to come back'," he said.

Special diets are no longer a part of the Iraqi-run prison.

Prisoners interviewed in the presence of their jailers said they were frightened for their safety. They complained that chicken and milk had been cut from their rations, leaving them on rice and water. They also complained about the oppressive heat.
Haleem Aleulami, who was released from the jail last week, three weeks after being arrested in Ramadi for carrying a pistol in his car, said the Americans had treated him better when they ran the jail. He claimed that visits from the International Red Cross staff had dried up and accused local human rights workers of being members of Shia groups who turned a blind eye to problems in the jail.

The prisoners knew what would happen when the Iraqi's took over.

And Khalid Alaani, who was also picked up in Ramadi suspected of involvement in Sunni terrorism, said: "We preferred the Americans. We asked to move with them to Baghdad airport because we knew the treatment would be changed because we know what the Iraqis are. When the Americans left everything changed."

The Iraqi's are no-nonsense when it comes to frills such as food and air temperature.

One officer, Capt Ali Abdelzaher, said: "We have a problem with the financing for the food, not like the Americans, and there is a technical problem with the air conditioning."

I'm waiting for massive apologies by Nancy Pelosi, Hillary and Teddy. Of course they would demand the Americans return to Abu Graib and investigate this outrage. But we'll never see that day. We'll also not see our msm covering this. They'd sooner kill themselves than admit our military is not evil. Besides they have no stomach for eating crow.
