Nightly News video : Iraq’s ‘Torture Museum’ shows off Saddam’s crimes.
(for some reason I can’t embed the video.. so go have a looksee yourself)
first two notes on the report itself..
1. After all these years of US presence here would FRIGGIN stop prnouncing the name of my country as ‘AI RAK’… it’s ‘EEEERAK’… and this applies to Iran as well… please.
2. Why on earth do US news channels get access to this when we haven’t heard about it at all in Iraq?
It seems there is a new musuem in Baghdad… a ‘torture musem’. Not really looking forward to that opening.. would rather hear when the Iraqi National Museum will be opening its door to the public.
From the video it almost looks lilke this ‘torture musem’ is being put together from things the US governemnt has given back to the Iraqis.. one metal pole from which people were hung has an FBI sticker on it and boxes have ‘Saddam’ written on them in English.. another gift from the US governemnt? oh and the hole in which Saddam was found is being ‘replicated’! Hurrah!
Anyway.. I won’t be visiting.. too macabre.
But I am looking forward to the documents the reporter said are going to be put online by the museum. That will be worth taking a look at.
