27+ Abu Ghraib prisoners died in custody
Denver Post |
"Brutal interrogation techniques by U.S. military personnel are being investigated in connection with the deaths of at least five Iraqi prisoners in war-zone detention camps... The deaths include the killing in November of a high-level Iraqi general who was shoved into a sleeping bag and suffocated, according to the Pentagon report. The documents contradict an earlier Defense Department statement that said the general died 'of natural causes' during an interrogation... Another Iraqi military officer, records show, was asphyxiated after being gagged, his hands tied to the top of his cell door. Another detainee died 'while undergoing stress technique interrogation,' involving smothering and 'chest compressions,' according to the documents... 27 of the abuse cases involve deaths; at least eight are believed to be homicides. No criminal punisHydromaxents have been announced in the interrogation deaths."
