Dispatches, Channel 4's flagship current affairs strand, exposes the full and unreported horror of the Iraqi conflict
and its aftermath, revealing the true scale of civilian casualties; and allegations that after the scandal of Abu Ghraib,
American soldiers continued to abuse prisoners; and that US forces did not systematically intervene in the torture and murder
of detainees by the Iraqi security services. The programme also features previously unreported material of insurgents being
killed while trying to surrender.
Channel 4 is the only UK broadcaster to have been given access to nearly 400,000
secret military significant activities reports (SIGACTS) logged by the US military in Iraq between 2004 and 2009. These reports
tell the story of the war and occupation which the US military did not want the world to know.
Terror, torture, sexual humiliation, atrocities, homicide,
systemic and widespread abuse at CIA run, Britain and Australia backed Abu Ghraib Prison, Iraq
Official inquiries have proven that almost all the detainees were innocent civilians. If the rule of western law prevails,
military and government leadership at the highest levels which authorised these abuses, should be bought to justice.
