Iraqi Democracy In Action

If you’re a government official and you allege wrongdoing, you’re usually protected as a whistleblower in most civilized nations. In addition, one of the arguements against the Saddam regime was the systematic use of rape as a weapon of terror. Well, rape is again being used a weapon of terror by the Shi’ite dominated Iraqi National Police. A Sunni official demanded an international investigation into rape claims by Sunni women. For his troubles, the Iranian puppet, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is firing him.

Political tensions ran high in Iraq today as Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki ordered the dismissal of a top Sunni official who called for an international investigation into the alleged rape of a Sunni woman by Iraqi security forces.

Mr. Maliki did not give a reason for his decision to dismiss Sheikh Ahmad Abdul Ghafoor al-Samaraei, the head of the Sunni Endowment, whose organization cares for Sunni mosques and shrines in Iraq.

Mr. Samaraei, speaking to the Al-Arabiya television network from Amman, Jordan, said that he knew of many cases of rape by Iraqi security forces, but victims were reluctant to come forward because of the stigma attached to the crime. He also said he also knew of cases of rape by Sunni clergy members.

Mr. Samaraei disputed Mr. Maliki’s right to fire him, arguing that only Iraq’s Presidential Council had that authority. He made his comments after Mr. Maliki said that the accused officers were innocent.

So we have a guy who is alleging rape by the Iranian infiltrated and dominated Iraqi “security” forces of Sunni women and also alleging rape by Sunni clerics. Instead of investigating these allegations to restore public trust, al-Maliki fires the whistleblowers. Over 3,000 Americans died and a half of trillion dollars have been spent to keep this Iranian puppet in power. This is why the Iraqi troop surge will ultimately fail. When the Americans leave, the Iraqis will have no faith in their so-called security forces and they’ll go back to their pastime of killing each other.
