Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. About six months after the invasion of Iraq rumors of Iraq prison abuse scandals started to emerge. The best known abuse incidents occurred at the large Abu Ghraib prison. Graphic pictures of some of those abuse incidents were made public. Less well-known abuse incidents have been documented at American prisons throughout Iraq. Coverup operation was extensive, consisting in partly admitting the undeniable, shifting the blame (standard method of diffusion), and minimizing the damage arisen from this unfortunate exposition of daily torture practices of USA soldiery.According to the Washington Post, the coalition forces regularly use "torture-like" methods during the interrogation of suspects. Such methods were reportedly applied to people to find the hiding place of Saddam Hussein in Operation Red Dawn. British troops have also on occasion been accused of abusing Iraqi detainees. Such treatment violates article 17 of the Third Geneva Convention and the USA and Britain's official policies on combat and occupation.
