Revealed: Pentagon's Link To Iraqi Torture Centers- Americans Are Asked to "Turn the Page?"
"Exclusive from the Guardian: General David Petraeus and 'dirty wars' veteran behind commando units implicated in detainee abuse
See the full-length documentary film of the 15-month investigation:
"A 15-month investigation by the Guardian and BBC Arabic reveals how retired US colonel James Steele, a veteran of American proxy wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua, played a key role in training and overseeing US-funded special police commandos who ran a network of torture centers in Iraq.
Another special forces veteran, Colonel James Coffman, worked with Steele and reported directly to General David Petraeus, who had been sent into Iraq to organize the Iraqi security services."
"The Pentagon sent a US veteran of the "dirty wars" in Central America to oversee sectarian police commando units in Iraq that set up secret detention and torture centers to get information from insurgents.
These units conducted some of the worst acts of torture during the US occupation and accelerated the country's descent into full-scale civil war."

Who is responsible and why have they not been brought to justice?
President Obama said we were "turning the page on Iraq".
Not so fast. There are questions the American people still need answered.
