Abu Ghraib Inmates Sue Contractors, Claim Torture
Former detainees of the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq are suing US contractors in four states for alleged torture. The complaints allege that innocent people who were arrested and taken to the prison were subjected to forced nudity, electrical shocks, mock executions, and other inhumane treatment by employees of defense contractors CACI International and L-3 Communications, formerly Titan Corporation.

Maybe now is a good time to teach the Iraqi's tort reform before this sort of thing gets out of hand.

It'll be interesting to see how much government protection the contractors are given. They were hired to do a job... How will other countries and group react if the plaintiffs run in to serious stonewalling, will they seek other venues? If the government doesn't offer the contractors some serious legal protection, will the contractors turn on government officials?

THIS is what I have been waiting for! After I saw the documentary "Ghosts of Abu Ghraib", where they interviewed many soliders, I wondered if justice would be brought to the contractors that were guiding them and doing the actual interrogations. In some ways, I feel the government used the soldiers as scapegoats and distractions from the contractors who were committing the terrible acts. What is worse, killing a person during interrogation, or taking a picture of a person who was killed during interrogation?
