    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Municipal workers in the Shiite holy city of Karbala found remains believed to be from a mass grave dating to 1991, when Saddam Hussein's regime put down a Shiite uprising in the south. Also, more than 10,000 people marched through Baghdad in support of a national unity government of Sunnis and Shiites, while insurgent attacks killed six Iraqi policemen and two civilians in a fresh surge of violence. The remains were discovered Monday and were sent for testing Tuesday in an effort to identify the bodies, said Rahman Mashawy, a Karbala police spokesman. He did not say...

    You were hard-pressed to find the story or to see the images anywhere in the mainstream media – three unarmed Iraqi election officials recently murdered in cold blood on their way to work – dragged from their car and shot in the head, execution style, by spineless terrorists – the entire massacre caught on film. Their crime? – Helping to further the cause of a free and democratic Iraq. Since the end of major combat operations, hundreds upon hundreds of innocent Iraqi men women and children have been deliberately targeted and blown limb from limb by foreign invaders – by...

    Anti-Liberation Theology The clerics got it wrong on Iraq. by Joseph Loconte 05/05/2003, Volume 008, Issue 33 RELIGIOUS FIGURES who opposed the liberation of Iraq have a lot of explaining to do. Fashioning themselves prophets of peace, they caustically denounced the "rush to war." Having granted the United Nations an almost transcendent moral authority, they declared Operation Iraqi Freedom an "immoral" act of aggression. In the months leading up to the conflict, they made a litany of brash claims and gloomy predictions--all proven to be utterly false. Take their suggestion that Saddam Hussein was not the devil many made him...

    How Many People Has Saddam Hussein Killed? By JOHN F. BURNS In the unlit blackness of an October night, it took a flashlight to pick them out: rust-colored butchers' hooks, 20 or more, each four or five feet long, aligned in rows along the ceiling of a large hangar-like building. In the grimmest fortress in Iraq's gulag, on the desert floor 20 miles west of Baghdad, this appeared to be the grimmest corner of all, the place of mass hangings that have been a documented part of life under Saddam Hussein. At one end of the building at Abu Ghraib...

    U.S. unsatisfied with Iraqi deal on inspections U.N. teams must have access to Saddam Hussein's palaces, Powell says 10/02/2002 Associated Press VIENNA, Austria - Iraq agreed Tuesday to a plan for the return of U.N. weapons inspectors for the first time in nearly four years, but the deal ignores U.S. demands for access to Saddam Hussein's palaces and other contested sites. Chief U.N. inspector Hans Blix said an advance team of inspectors could be in Iraq in two weeks if it gets the go-ahead from the U.N. Security Council. Hours later, however, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said...

    Unity key to a new Iraq Ousting Hussein may not suffice if opposition can't see eye to eye 09/24/2002 By JIM LANDERS / The Dallas Morning News WASHINGTON - Iraqis in exile sense Saddam Hussein's downfall is finally at hand and are drafting blueprints for a new regime. But U.S. analysts caution that a history drenched in treachery must be overcome for Iraq to emerge with a government aiming for unity. The decade-old Iraqi National Congress, an umbrella organization of dissidents based in London, is pulling together reports on federalism, democracy, human rights and civil rights for a transitional...
