American troops in Iraq handed over captives to an infamous torture squad, according to newly-released files from the Wikileaks war logs.
The documents appear to show that US commanders passed detainees over to the “Wolf Brigade”, a feared unit controlled by the ministry of the interior.
In files seen by The New York Times, a US interrogator told the prisoner that: “He would be subject to all the pain and agony that the Wolf battalion is known to exact upon its detainees.”
In Samarra, 75 miles north of Baghdad, log entries in 2004 and 2005 describe repeated raids by US soldiers, who then handed their captives over to the Wolf Brigade for “further questioning”.
