This presents an interesting problem:
The Iraqi Interior Ministry insisted Monday that none of the 625 prisoners discovered last week in an Iraqi detention center had been tortured or abused, despite assertions by American officials to the contrary.
The declaration by the ministry official was delivered as early voting began in Iraq’s election for a full, four-year parliament, as soldiers, hospital patients and prison detainees across the country cast their ballots in advance of the rest of the electorate, which goes to the polls on Thursday.
The estimated 1.5 million Iraqi voters living abraod were also permitted to cast ballots at about 50 polling stations outside the country on Monday.
Maybe it was just a harmless fraternity prank?
