You know that right out of the box they are all going to allege prison brutality. Of course. And of course, they will have many supporters, not least of all the American/European mainstream media whores.

This will become the litigation of the century and will outdo any 'entertainment' ever presented in any circus/Colosseum/boxing ring/film screen, etc. EVER!!!

It's the BS we will be living with morning, noon and night forever. I doubt there will be resolution in our lifetime.

I doubt they will be able to bring that up in court. I think the courts will get right to the business of hanging these guys, IMHO.

And, that'll be the only "news" the parasites will report on during any trials.

I would have liked it better if they had added at least a couple of names that aren't already "caught".

You are mistaking American Justice for Iraqui Justice.

I will be surprised if this last out the year.

The longer these men are alive, the longer they are a focal point for resistance and the possiblility of blackmail or prison breaks.

I suspect justice will be swift in this case.

Things ARE changing in Iraq! No matter what the lamebrainmainstreamleftistliberalmedia does to keep you from seeing or hearing about all the changes.. for the better.

Iraqi police officers march during a graduation ceremony, that later turned into a party celebrating their country's new sovereignty, at a police academy in the southern city of Basra, June 29, 2004. The United States handed over sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government on Monday, formally ending a 14-month occupation two days earlier than expected to try to forestall guerrilla attacks.

An Iraqi police officer kisses his nation's flag after graduating on the first day of Iraq (news - web sites)'s new sovereignty, at a police academy in the southern city of Basra June 29, 2004. The United States handed over sovereignty to an interim Iraqi government on Monday, formally ending a 14-month occupation two days earlier than expected to try to forestall guerrilla attacks. About 60 police officers graduated from the British-run training facility and their celebrations turned to that of their country's new sovereignty. REUTERS/Atef Hassan

I agree that it will get worse before it gets better, but we didn't start the fire.

I'm just glad that the New Iraqi Government will be allowed to handle this. They can take the best obvious measures while we have to play legal games.

Look at the Peterson case out here in California. Everyone knows the guy did it; but the law allows for all kinds of "Mother May I" games to be played.

...but that's another issue....

LOL. Reminds me of a bar in San Diego I visited in the early 1970's on the same night the bar was having its "5th Annual Going Out Of Business Sale".

I betcha these guys will be spoliing their underwear when they are really turned over to the Iraqis in the future. I would not be surpised there will not be some kind of torture involved. The American guards said Saddam did admit his biggest fear was being turned over the the Iraqis.

Especially the guards that come into Saddam's cell at night asking where his Shite family members are.

Justice can never be served; but this is the next best thing.

Justice implies that the victim deserved what he got just as the villan deserves it. It can't happen.

This will have to do.
