Apparently the Iraqi police force we recruited were running a racket: Iraqis who refused to pay them off were turned over to the Coalition Forces as members of the opposition. “Many persons deprived of their liberty drew parallels between police practices of the occupation with those of the former regime.” (Sec 3.5, Par. 35, p. 16)
Feh. And the CPA knew about this months ago and didn’t bust any of the Iraqi cops? Are you still surprised ordinary Iraqis no longer think of us as liberators?
