Torture facility found in Iraq….where is the ACLU?

Surprise, surprise….

BAGHDAD (AP) — U.S. Soldiers found mass graves north of Baghdad next to a torture center where chains were attached to blood-spattered walls and a metal bed frame was still connected to an electrical shock system, the military said Thursday.

……The discoveries of the mass graves and torture center near Muqdadiyah, about 60 miles north of Baghdad, came during a Dec. 8-11 operation.

The torture center, which the U.S. military said it suspected was run by al-Qaida in Iraq, was found based on tips from Iraqis in the area, where the al-Qaida insurgents are very active. Graves containing 26 bodies were found nearby.

“We discovered several (weapons) caches, a torture facility that had chains, a bed — an iron bed that was still connected to a battery — knives and swords that were still covered in blood as we went in to go after the terrorists in that area,” said Army Maj. Gen. Mark P. Hertling, the top U.S. commander in northern Iraq.

Soldiers found a total of nine caches containing a surface-to-air missile launcher, sniper rifles, 130 pounds of homemade explosives and numerous mortar tubes and rounds, among other weapons.

The operation also saw multiple battles between U.S. troops and militants, and the military said it killed 24 insurgents and detained 37 others.

The silence from the leftist asshats is deafening.

  1. Hey ocean,
    The difference here, and I know it went right over your pointy head, is that every miscreant in GITMO earned their way there. They were captured after firefights and arrested as part of counter-terrorist operations. Those people slaughtered and tortured by al Qaeda were only “guilty” of being part of a different sect or people who were deemed “infidels”. The Left pisses and moans and complains incessantly about the measures we have to take in order to extract information that will save American lives. I’m supposed to lose sleep over that? You’re nuts. If you don’t think the War on Terror isn’t “worth it” than Mohammad Atta didn’t hit close enough to your own back yard. It was their type of ideological and religious stance that started this war. Brave Soldiers are fighting Islamic thugs who would gladly subject you to their oppressive theocracy. At least act like you’re worth the sacrifice. Know what makes me happy? Dead muslim terrorists. You’re just like the ACLU; happy when the U.S. gets slammed by the MSM, and pissed when they’re embarrassed into silence.

    You can go back to playing with yourself, now.

    The ACLU is “American” Civil Liberties Union. So, I would imagine it’s still in America. Dealing with American issues. As far as I know, they are not the International Civil Liberties Union.

    I don’t know what you’re saying by the “Silence from leftist asshats is deafening”. It seems you’re almost happy that they found a terrorist torture chamber, as if it was worth all the people who died/were tortured there to vindicate your ideological stance.

    If this is in fact a torture chamber run by al-Qaida, what does that prove? No one disputes that al-Qaida is a bad organization. I think the 3,000 people who died on 9/11 established that fairly well. I think you’re misinterpreting “leftist” arguements; they don’t think al-Qaida isn’t bad, they just don’t think this indefinite “War on Terror” is unwinnable and not worth the financial/innocent civilian costs.

    Also, don’t forget that the US runs several torture chambers – Guantanamo Bay and others – and though they don’t murder the inmates there (at least in Guantanamo), why doesn’t that demand a “rightist” outrage?
