Camp Bucca Prison Center  

The US government has suffered another major blow as a new report has revealed that the US-run prisons in Iraq have turned into militant-training centers.  According to an AFP report, several former inmates of the US prisons in Iraq have revealed that the prisons have turned into training centers for radical elements.  

Extremists at the US-run prison Camp Bucca near the southern port city of Umm Qasr, which was shut down this fall, were allowed to give training courses to inmates on how to use explosives and how to become suicide bombers, the report said.  Two attacks on the buildings of Iraq's foreign and finance ministries on August 19 were carried out by two former prisoners of Camp Bucca.  Adel Jasim Mohammed, a former inmate at Camp Bucca who spent four years there without ever facing charges, was quoted by the Aljazeera English satellite television channel as saying that the "US officials did nothing to stop radicals from indoctrinating young detainees at the camp."  The US military denies that moderates have been radicalized in the camp, which held thousands of Iraqis since it was opened in 2003 and shut down in September 2009.  "When we came up with a model of detainee housing in which we separated individuals by tens — and they had no other access to anybody else — they became tremendously frustrated," said General David Quantock, the deputy commanding general of detainee operations for the Multi-National Force in Iraq.  It is estimated that about 100,000 Iraqis were in US custody in Camp Bucca between 2003 and 2009.
