Former collaborator discloses details of US-ordered assassinations, sectarian 
bomb attacks targeting Iraqi civilians

An Iraqi who asked not to be identified had disclosed some of the US activities 
such as assassinations and bombings in markets that aim at sparking sectarian 
fighting among Iraqis so as to facilitate the partition of the country.

He pointed out that he that he worked with the US occupation troops for about 
two and a half years and then was able to flee from them to an area outside 
Baghdad where, he hopes, the Americans will not be able to get to him.

The former Iraqi collaborator recalled: "I was a soldier in the Iraqi army in 
the war of 1991 and during the withdrawal from Kuwait I decided to seek asylum 
in Saudi Arabia along with dozens of others like me. That was how began the 
process whereby I was recruited into the American forces, for there were US 
military committees that chose a number of Iraqis who were willing to volunteer 
to join them and be transported to America. I was one of those," he said.

The former collaborator went on: "In 1992 I was taken to America, specifically 
to an island where most of the establishments were military. I was with a number
of other Iraqis, one of them the former governor of an-Najaf, 'Adnan adh-Dharfi.
We received military training and intense courses in English and in how to carry
out tasks like assassination," he recounted.

The former collaborator said that during the 2003 invasion and subsequent war, 
he was transported back to the interior of Iraq to carry out specific tasks 
assigned him by the US agencies.

"During the last war that led to the occupation of Iraq," he recalled, "I was 
with a group of my comrades who had received training in America in how to 
spread chaos in the ranks of the Iraqi army. We were brought into Iraq across 
the border from Saudi Arabia. We put on Iraqi army uniforms and out mission was 
basically to spread rumors among the Iraqis, such as that the American army had 
already got into such-and-such a city, or that it is on the outskirts of Baghdad
and other such things, which were part of the reason for the rapid collapse of 
the Iraqi forces," he said.

The former collaborator went on: "the unit that I was with settled in the 
presidential palace in the al-A'zamiyah district. We were allowed to visit our 
relatives and relations in Baghdad once a month, and so I would go visit my 
family in 'Madinat as-Sadr¹ in eastern Baghdad. But after things began to get 
worse and the armed men began to shot at everyone leaving the palace, I asked my
family to come to the palace every now and then so I could see them. My job was 
being a guard, but after a time that situation changed and the American 
occupation forces put me in charge of a group of a unit that carried out 
assassinations in the streets of Baghdad," he said.

"Our task was to carry out assassinations of individuals. The US occupation army
would supply us with their names, pictures, and maps of their daily movements to
and from their place of residence and we were supposed to kill the Shi'i, for 
example, in the al-A'zamiyah, and kill the Sunni in the of 'Madinat as-Sadr¹, 
and so on."

"Anyone in the unit who made a mistake was killed. Three members of my team were
killed by US occupation forces after they failed to assassinate Sunni political 
figures in Baghdad. A US force that had been so-ordered eliminated them. That 
took place two years ago," the former collaborator recalled.

The former collaborator said that the Americans have a unit for "dirty jobs." 
That unit is a mix of Iraqis, Americans, and foreigners and of the security 
detachments that are deployed in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities. This unit 
doesn¹t only carry out assassinations, but some of them specialize in planting 
bombs and car bombs in neighborhoods and markets. This unit carries out 
operations in which wanted people whom the American army does not want killed 
are arrested.

The former collaborator said that "operations of planting car bombs and blowing 
up explosives in markets are carried out in various ways, the best-known and 
most famous among the US troops is placing a bomb inside cars as they are being 
searched at checkpoints. Another way is to put bombs in the cars during 
interrogations. After the desired person is summoned to one of the US bases, a 
bomb is place in his car and he is asked to drive to a police station or a 
marked for some purpose and there his car blows up."

The testimony of the former collaborator is consistent with some western reports
that have disclosed the involvement of US military personnel in bombings that 
target Iraqi civilians. The British reporter Robert Fisk, AMSI noted, had 
recently met with Iraqis in Syria concerning such "black operations" carried out
by the Americans.

The Egyptian writer and former editor of al-Ahram, Muhammad Hasanayn Haykal, 
also noted in an interview with al-Jazeera satellite TV that there are 
mercenaries who practically make up an army second only to the regular US army 
in Iraq in terms of their numbers and equipment. This force is now called the 
"Knights of Malta" Haykal said, and they are the cause of many of the attacks 
that target Iraqi civilians. Haykal noted that there are Iraqis and Lebanese 
working in the ranks of that force.
