"Where is my son? Where is my son?"

Truth About Iraqis

pr6a.jpg

May 1, 2006

​​​​Look at this picture. Now look at the grimace on the woman's face. The pieces of paper she is holding read: "Where is my son, O Government? Where is my son?"

The woman is looking for her son, one of tens of thousands detained by Iraq's new security forces and "lost" in the system.

The three groups who researched what they called "widespread" torture and detainee abuse by US personnel said many abuses were never investigated, or inquiries were often concluded or stalled without further action.

This is not the first time we have heard of "disappearances". In fact, Iraqi mothers, sisters, and fathers have complained of their disappeared sons, brothers, fathers, and uncles.

The Sunday Times of London cites witnesses who said on Aug. 8, 40 police and Interior Ministry vehicles lined a street in the Iskan neighborhood and escorted masked members of a controversial militia as they rounded up 22 men. The 22 were found later in the desert more than 70 miles from home, blindfolded, bound and dead from one or two gunshots.

But the world tells them to shut up. And one misguided professor tells them they would be safer if their country was divided into five sectors. Prof, tell that to this distraught woman, if you please.

The top United Nations envoy in Iraq today voiced serious concern over the human rights situation in the war-torn country, including allegations of extra-judicial executions, consistent reports of excessive use of force and mass detentions of people without warrants, and the displacement of populations in security operations...

Freedom. Democracy. Liberty. Pluralism. Federalism. Community of nations. International law. Geneva conventions. Waste of paper ...

And I still hear from some pitiful souls who say "hey, it happened under Saddam, so it's okay if it happens now".

Gianni Magazzeni said that of the 15,000 people held under Iraqi control, little more than half were under the jurisdiction of the justice ministry.This is the only body with the right to detain suspects for more than 72 hours.But he said thousands were also being detained by the interior ministry and hundreds by the defence ministry, in clear breach of Iraqi law.

But this poor woman's words ring louder than any paper written by lawyers, think tanks, and political pundits.

Iraqi inspiration quote FROM Fayrouz: I'm more interested in reading the opinions of Iraqi bloggers than reading the American bloggers analysis of the siuation. Yes, you can add me to the list of your enemies of all I'm concerned.
