AP: US insists on Iraqi jail standards - Dec. 25

By JASON STRAZIUSO, Associated Press Writer - 1 hour, 21 minutes ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military will not hand over jails or individual detainees to Iraqi authorities until they demonstrate higher standards of care, an American official said Sunday, two weeks after the discovery of 120 abused Iraqi prisoners.

Lt. Col. Barry Johnson said detention facilities in Iraq will be transferred over time to Iraqi officials but they must first show that the rights of detainees are safeguarded and that international law on the treatment of prisoners is being followed.

Yeah, they simply must learn how to torture prisoners like we do before we can trust them with such an important task.
