Isn’t it time to clean the American house?

Isn’t it time to clean the American house?
Physical abuse of prisoners by American servicemen in Iraq was not by chance. It’s been made common practice with the American military agencies. This was stated by Red Cross some time ago. Now the well known American Civil Liberties Union legal specialist Jane Juffer confirms this deeply disturbing truth. The U.S. Department of Army following the clampdown of watchdog organizations disclosed some previously classified stuff on numerous probes into cases of Iraqi detainees’ maltreatment by American soldiers, both male and female. There is the data on 341 criminal suits brought against American GIs. 226 of them have been closed since! Only in 69 of cases 109 military criminals were convicted. Isn’t it alarming?
