From El Salvador to Iraq: Washington's man behind brutal police squads

Retired Colonel Jim Steele, whose military decorations include the Silver Star, the Defence Distinguished Service Medal, four Legions of Merit, three Bronze Stars and the Purple Heart, is not at home. Nor is he at his office headquarters in Geneva, where he is listed as the chief executive officer of Buchanan Renewables, an energy company. Similar efforts to track him down at his company's office in Monrovia are futile. Messages are left. He doesn't call back.

For over a year the Guardian has been trying to contact Steele, 68, to ask him about his role during the Iraq war as US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld's personal envoy to Iraq's Special Police Commandos: a fearsome paramilitary force that ran a secret network of detention centres across the country – where those suspected of rebelling against the US-led invasion were tortured for information.

'Salvador Option' mooted for Iraq

By Tom Gibb 

BBC, South America

With no end to the Iraq conflict in sight, some US military strategists have been considering tactics used during the civil war in El Salvador, a brutal and bloody campaign that lasted for years.

The US colonel in charge at the close of El Salvador's civil war was a tall man with a shaven head, which, as a colleague put it, "looked as if it would repel cannonballs".

Iraq builds 'Third River' project despite no-fly zone and embargo

November marks the third month of the no-fly zone in southern Iraq, imposed this summer by the United States, and sanctioned by the U. N. Security Council, that dictates no Iraqi planes are permitted to fly south of the 31 st parallel. 
The rationalization given by the United States for this policy of "industrial apartheid" and depopulation, includes broad accusations against Iraq, involving specific falsehoods about the hydrology of the region. Efforts to improve southern Iraq drainage, the U. S. government claims, have been threatening inhabitants of the marshlands by hurting fisheries and harming the environment.

Cathy Breen 10 Years in Iraq Part 1 of 2 
A Flying Focus Video Presentation:
"Eyewitness 10 Years Later: What Iraqs are Saying" 
On March 19, exactly 10 years since the US invasion of Iraq, an ignoble anniversary was marked by a talk in Portland. Cathy Breen of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, who spent six weeks in Iraq in October and November 2012, spoke in the Eliot Chapel at First Unitarian Church.
That talk is captured on the next two episodes of our weekly series, the Flying Focus Video Bus.
Breen's solo visit to Iraq was her first in nine years and brought word of the conditions of the country after being invaded, occupied and wracked with violence. She presented photos and stories to bring the humanity of ordinary Iraqis to the audience. Stories and photos about the deteriorated infrastructure-- water, electricity, and hospitals-- are a stark reminder that 13 years of sanctions and 10 years of war left the country in ruins.
