In the US, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. In Iraq . . .

. . . the US presumes you are guilty until you prove your innocence.
Iraqi and U.S. authorities freed 495 prisoners from U.S. facilities on Saturday, completing a mass release announced by the prime minister last month as part of his national reconciliation efforts.

U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad welcomed the move and said more prisoners could be freed.

Al-Maliki had promised to release 2,500 inmates by the end of June.

The Justice Ministry said Saturday's releases fulfilled that promise but stressed officials would continue to study the cases of individual inmates and release them as merited.
They truly do hate freedom - so much so that the US thinks they prefer false imprisonment by occupiers to life under Saddam.

Hey denk,

I only used it to illustrate my point, that this administration (indeed, like administrations before it - though not as glaringly obvious) is hypocritical.

These days, the concept of innocent until proven guilty is largely a quaint rhetorical anachronism.

thanks for the links.
