173 Sunni Prisoners Freed from Torture Chambers

On the 16th of November, USA Forces along with Iraqi Forces and Police raided a secret prison belonging to the Interior Ministry. There are claims under investigation of torture.

PM al-Jaafari declared an investigation is underway, and the prisoners had been moved from that area.
In Washington, State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli called for those responsible to be held accountable.

"We don't practice torture, and we don't believe that others should practice torture," he said. "So when there are cases of people being accused of torture, we take that seriously."
We certainly do. We do not treat our citizens in this manner, and it is good to see this country learning how people in a civil manner treat their offenders-if indeed they were guily of anything.

Update: Iraq the Model has written a good article on this subject. I encourage you to read it.
