Over 100 Killed under US Custody in Iraq and Afghanistan

That's just what we know about. But, if you want to see some crazy media bias check this out.

Here is a story from Prensa Latina (Latin American News Agency):

Over 100 Killed under US Custody in Iraq and Afghanistan

It claims, "Some 108 people have died, most of them violently as a result of abuse, under US military custody in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a government report provided to the Associated Press."

Ok, now check out this Rueters story:

US Military Calls 2 Dozen Detainee Deaths Homicide

They don't give you the figures straight out. The only way to get the total is to add it up yourself.

Check it out:

"The Army Criminal Investigation Command looked into the deaths of 79 prisoners in U.S. custody in Iraq and Afghanistan dating back to 2002 in 68 separate investigations, according to figures released by the Army."

Then

"The Army investigated 24 cases involving confirmed or suspected homicides and another 11 cases of confirmed or suspected justifiable homicides."

Folks,
The American people just aren't getting the facts reported clearly.

Most people are not aware of America's “extraordinary rendition” program which basically allows us to torture people.

Isn't it un-american. It's it sick. It's the reputation of our country.
