The story of a US asset in Iraq.(thanks Nir).
US wants Saddam’s brutal secret police back on the street.

A special supplement of Stars and Stripes: a survey of US troops in Iraq.

The female US soldier who was reportedly raped attempts suicide.
A brave American soldier blasts the US lies about the “battle” of Samarra’.
The US media has not covered the cases of those terrorists. But then again, they are neither Muslims or Arabs.
Many FBI recommendations for prosecution rejected. A detailed study.
