One Thousand A Month Tortured To Death In Iraq
Dr. John Pace drops a bombshell that translates as a whisper through obscure Maltese paper

Proving that Abu Ghraib and Gitmo are the tip of the iceberg, the outgoing UN human rights chief dropped a bombshell when he told an obscure Maltese newspaper that as many as a thousand detainees a month are being tortured to death in Iraq.

Dr. John Pace told the obscure Times of Malta newspaper,

"The Baghdad morgue received 1,100 bodies in July alone, about 900 of whom bore evidence of torture or summary execution. That continued throughout the year and last December there were 780 bodies, including 400 having gunshot wounds or wounds as those caused by electric drills."

Pace echoed previous estimates in stating that 80 to 90 per cent of those rounded up and taken to prison camps were completely innocent. As we have highlighted before, Iraqis are arrested for dastardly crimes such as not showing their papers at checkpoints, selling alcohol and shouting anti-coalition statements.

Footage of US army personnel seizing a taxi cab and destroying it with an Abrams tank was broadcast two years ago on PBS. The crime? Stealing firewood.

Regular bombing raids that indiscriminately target large groups of what appear to be protesters have also been circulated on the Internet.

Pace's comments underline the fact that Abu Ghraib is just one of many torture camps that have been used throughout the country since the "liberation" of Iraq and the so-called end of Saddam Hussein's brutal regime of rape rooms and torture camps - and is tame in comparison to the real horrors taking place beneath the media radar.

More than half of Iraqis now say life was better off under Saddam and 47% support insurgent attacks on US forces.
