Revolution #54, July 23, 2006
Note to Readers:
In the article “Rape and Murder of Abeer Qassim Hamza: The Bloody Reality of U.S. Occupation” in the last issue of Revolution, we cited the FBI as a source of information on the rape and murder of a young Iraqi woman and her family by U.S. troops. The FBI is not a reliable source of information, and has a long history of fabricating evidence, including to attack progressive movements. Details of the murder have also been reported by more credible sources and in mainstream news media. See “5 more charged in Iraq rape-slayings case,” the Associated Press, July 9; “GIs May Have Planned Iraq Rape, Slayings,” the Associated Press, July 1; “Details Emerge in Alleged Army Rape, Killings,” Washington Post, July 3; and “Ex-G.I. Accused of Murders and Rape in Iraq,” New York Times, July 3.
