Robert Fisk: On the shocking truth about the American occupation of Iraq
Could Haditha be just the tip of the mass grave? The corpses we have glimpsed, the grainy footage of the cadavers and the dead children; could these be just a few of many? Does the handiwork of America's army of the slums go further?

Published: 03 June 2006

I remember clearly the first suspicions I had that murder most foul might be taking place in our name in Iraq. I was in the Baghdad mortuary, counting corpses, when one of the city's senior medical officials - an old friend - told me of his fears. "Everyone brings bodies here," he said. "But when the Americans bring bodies in, we are instructed that under no circumstances are we ever to do post-mortems. We were given to understand that this had already been done. Sometimes we'd get a piece of paper like this one with a body." And here the man handed me an American military document showing the hand-drawn outline of a man's body and the words "trauma wounds".

What kind of trauma? Indeed, what kind of trauma is now being experienced in Iraq? Who is doing the mass killing? Who is dumping so many bodies on garbage heaps? After Haditha, we are going to reshape our suspicions.

Robert Fisk: the master of information manipulation to suit one-sided perception and to negate or ignore all proven facts by the other side, namely the right-wing side or the rational-minded side.

Innocent Iraqi citizens have been brutally murdered from day one of the unprovoked invasion for Israel and Oil.

Wul,

All dead bodies in Iraq are not due to the US military.

There is sectarian violence as well.


The sensational and 'bad news' sells more newspapers and public opinion versus the good news stories that abound every day - those about the generous and compassionate nature of enlisted GIs expressed toward the Iraqi people and their children. (schools helped, clinics opened, sports equipment donated, et.al.)


I offer no excuse for any immoral behaviour on anyone's part - there will be investigations, tribunals and courts martials to get to the bottom of things - and May God have mercy on those screw-ups - because the military will not.
