Why This Raucousness?
Responding to the Human Rights Watch report of horrifying and ongoing
torture at a secret Baghdad prison, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal

themselves - to make him look bad. Far too many deaths, billions
and victims later, it still must be said: What is the U.S. doing
there in the first place?
