MILITARY DOCUMENTS released by the Pentagon in response to a Freedom of Information Act filing by the ACLU reveal that U.S. soldiers tried to cover up their abuse and torture of detainees in Iraq. One example:

A former Iraqi detainee told Army investigators that a US soldier forced him to sign a statement that he had not been abused even though American interrogators in September 2003 had dislocated his arms, beaten his leg with a bat, crushed his nose, and put an unloaded gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger, according to newly released internal military documents.
Freedom is on the march.
