"Mass graves are no longer a possibility"

"Because we acted, torture rooms are closed, rape rooms no longer exist, mass graves are no longer a possibility in Iraq."—Bush, remarks at "Ask President Bush" event, Michigan, May 3, 2004

Iraqi forces find 30 bodies in mass grave

Hilla, Iraq - The bodies of 30 people, including two women, were discovered in a mass grave south of Baghdad on Sunday, and police have made several arrests in connection with the grisly find, security sources said.

"A grave containing 30 mutilated bodies, of which two were women, was discovered at Awerij," about 20 kilometres south of the Iraqi capital, said police lieutenant Muthanna al-Shumari.

Shumari said the grave, located in Babylon province whose capital is Hilla, dated back around around six months.

Iraqi forces conducted house searches in the region and arrested 13 suspects, including a Sudanese and an Egyptian, Shumari said, adding that one Iraqi suspect was killed during the operation.

Saddamite rape rooms now replaced by US controlled kiddie rape rooms, caught on videotape. Oops. Could provide aid and comfort to the enemey--the actual deeds, that is, not the tapes.
