Iraq Lies

20 Headless Bodies Found In Iraq.

Oops, wait. Maybe we jumped the gun. Apparently this also happened back in June and I either missed it or just don't remember it. Jut another example of how the media doesn't bother to fact check.

Remember the Haditha massacre?
Another that was NOT true but widely reported as true.
Main Stream media is more than happy to report enemy propaganda without corrections when its proven untrue.

For the record, the Iraqi police deny just about everything.

If you have a look, there are very few things they don't outright deny - including that they had convicted murderers on the force, and that they've been using torture on prisoners (both things the UN itself has proven, and the Iraqi government has admitted to being true).

I'm not going to put forth any suggestions as to why that is because it could be extant from their need to be reformed, or it could just be that they don't want the news to get out and scare the civilians - what with the way that most are leaving the country.

Point is that just because the Iraqi police deny something doesn't mean much. I'd suggest that if you wanted to prove or disprove the article that you look at where they got their information from.
