Once again, the US is turning over the dirty work of torture to it's proxies. With the insurgency growing, it is apparent we are, in fact, losing the war in Iraq. So we have turned to a new tack. The dirty war, El Salvador style. For those of you with short memories, the right wing government of El Salvador, with massive American logistical help, fought a 12 year war with left wing insurgents. The war featured widespread government use of death squads and torture. In many cases, whole villages were massacred. As a result, a country of 6 million people suffered 70,000 dead, mostly civilians. Now the US is exporting this strategy to Iraq. See the story from the Sunday NY Times here.
