Iraq war leaks: No US investigation of many abuses

Here's why the Pentagram didn't want you to see the Wikileaks documents: they reveal what your tax dollars are really used for:

U.S. forces often failed to follow up on credible evidence that Iraqi forces mistreated, tortured and killed their captives in the battle against a violent insurgency, according to accounts contained in what was purportedly the largest leak of secret information in U.S. history...

The documents describe a full gamut of a country at war: shootings at military checkpoints, contractors firing on Iraqis and savage acts committed on prisoners using boiling water, metal rods, electric shocks and rubber hoses. A group that counts casualties from the war said the files also document 15,000 previously unreported deaths.

Those are the things the Empire does in the name of the global democratic revolution and American hegemony. Feel the pride.
