Sadr’s Mahdi Army up to its old tricks

I shouldn’t be surprised about this newest outrage; we’ve seen no shortage of it in Iraq from Sadr’s goons.

Chunks of hair waft lazily across the floor in the hot Baghdad breeze.

“This was the torture room,” said Muhanad, the leader of a U.S.-backed armed group that now controls the mosque.

“This is what they used for hanging,” he said, pointing to a cord dangling from the ceiling. “Here is a chain we found tied to an old man’s body.”

The horrific scene at this southwestern Baghdad mosque is what officials say was the work of a Shiite militia known as the Mehdi Army. Residents who live near the mosque say they could hear the victims’ screams.

That we knew Sadr’s propensity for torture makes his appeasement by Britain all the more tragic.
