The "Death Squads"

Let me try to paint the picture a little more clearly, Mr. Peters [Ralph]: When Sunnis cheer the Americans, it’s not because things are rosy, it’s because they’re more scared of the Shi’ites than they are of you. Sunnis in Baghdad I’ve spoken with have told me they would rather be arrested by the Americans than by the government forces, because at least now the Americans won’t torture you as badly. They have no love for Americans, they just know who is best able to protect them from their neighbors.

Chris Albritton with the brutal honesty. The idea that the US is sanctioning thse squads because they train the Iraqi army is ludicrous. It sure sounds as if the Iraqis can't say the same thing. Close to civil war is how he sees things now.
