Leaked files show US failure to probe Iraqi torture

WikiLeaks files reveal Iran waging shadow war with US

Published:

Graphic accounts of torture, civilian killings and Iran's hand in the Iraq war are detailed in hundreds of thousands of U.S. military documents made public Friday on the whistleblower website WikiLeaks.

Across nearly 400,000 pages of secret military field reports spanning five years, the largest military leak in history, a grisly picture emerges of years of blood and suffering following the 2003 U.S. invasion to oust Saddam Hussein.

Many of the classified documents, which span from 2004 to 2009, chronicle claims of abuse by Iraqi security forces, while others appear to show that American troops did nothing to stop state-sanctioned torture.
