Inquiry call into Iraq jail abuse

From The Austrialian:
Up to 200 half-starved Iraqi detainees bearing signs of torture have been found in an apparently secret jail in Baghdad in circumstances reminiscent of Saddam Hussein's regime. Many of the mostly Sunni prisoners had been severely beaten. Some had been paralysed. Many others had skin peeling off their bodies.

The Sunni-based Islamic Party last night called for an international investigation into the abuse of the prisoners, suggesting the Shi'ite-dominated Government might be responsible, "or at least accomplices".

The group also blamed US-led coalition forces for the abuse, saying it could not happen without "their green light". [more]

Of course, U.S. officials deny responsibility and they have never lied to us before, right?

Same treatment, different regime.
