No secret about these prisons...

Security Watchtower has a concise roundup of simply frightening testimony given by witnesses at Saddam Hussein's ongoing trial, including:

"I swear by God, I walked by a room and... saw a grinder with blood coming out of it and human hair underneath," Mr Hassan told the court. As he spoke, Barzan, sitting behind Saddam in the dock, interrupted, shouting: "It’s a lie!" "My brother was given electric shocks while my 77-year-old father watched," Mr Hassan continued.

The sad commentary is that there seems to be more interest among certain circles in secret prisons housing the upper echelon of al-Qaeda than real torture on women and other civilians by the guiding hand of Saddam Hussein.
