WikiLeaks Iraq War Logs: Torture, civilian death toll revealed in latest leak

23 Oct 2010

U.S. commanders in Iraq ignored evidence of torture and often failed to investigate the killing of civilians. These are the major findings from the leak of 400,000 secret American military files from the whistleblowing website, WikiLeaks. The data describes widespread brutal torture of detainees by Iraqi troops – with some documents showing American authorities often turned a blind eye. The files also reveal that 66,000 civilians were killed in Iraq since the U.S. invaded – even though Washington had denied it kept any such record.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

“Public prosecutor protected soldier in Iraq case”

Updated: Wednesday, 12 Feb 2014, 23:33

The public prosecutor has deliberately withheld crucial testimony about a fatal shooting incident in Iraq. This said attorney Ms Zegveld in Nieuwsuur TV program.

In 2004, an Iraqi was shot dead as he drove through a roadblock. A Dutch lieutenant fired on the car of the man. He said that Iraqi soldiers had also opened fire on the car.

Iraqis later stated that they did not shoot, but those documents were not included for the court in Arnhem. The prosecution considered the case closed because supposedly it was not clear who had fired the fatal shot.

This is perjury by the public prosecutor in the case of the killing of Iraqi Azhar Jaloud, Ms Zegveld says.

      • What worries me is are we committing acts against humanity. It has happened before. So many of our kids are coming home suicidal and with PTSD. One of my dearest friends’ oldest did two tours in Iraqi. She was notified that he had been shot in his hand. Then received a call that they weren’t sure where he was. So I got in touch with another friend at a University. She had military contacts. I got the message back that he suddenly was in Germany. After he healed he was sent back to Iraq. When he came home on leave he would not tell his mom or I what happened. He knows I am a pacifist and she is, well, his mom. He still won’t talk about it. I used to change his diapers. We all lived together back in the day. I always have an uneasy truce with government. You may have picked up on that. Haha. Hugs, Barbara
