Grim clues to police station's past

quote:
The unsurprising presence of the dreaded Mukhabarat in the police station is another grim clue.

It is by far the most infamous of Saddam Hussein's internal security services.

With its sole aim being to protect the dictator's political power base since he "assumed" power in July 1979, the Mukhabarat controlled towns and cities with a reign of unbridled violence and terror.


I've been looking around for some more news topics regarding the Mukhabarat... anyone seen any?
