    Do we have a Wodgah? We will welease Wodgah....

    Stardate 4612.8

    MSN - Abu Ghraib, Iraq - The U.S. Military began to relese 1000 Iraqi detainees at the request of the Iraqi government to honor Ramadan. The first 500 were loaded onto busses and driven out today. The rest will follow later on this week. Last month another 1000 detainees were released as well.

    Apparently, Arab governments tend to release non-violent offenders during Ramadan, but these releases seem to be geared towards encouraging the Iraqis to come out and vote in the October 15th draft constitution referendum.

    The U.S. government said it only releases detainees who are not guilty of serious, violent crimes -- such as bombing, torture, kidnapping, or murder -- and who have had admitted their crimes, renounced violence, "and pledged to be good citizens of a democratic Iraq."

    I am just glad that many of these people are being released. I imagine many are not guilty of anything, and hopefully, the ones that were actually guilty hold no grudges against the US occupiers. Yeah right...

    Ironically, the previous 1000 released prisoners were mostly Sunni Arabs however, the Sunnis are calling for a no-show at the polls for the referendum. Oh and the title is inspired by Monty Python... as the Mighty Woman Empire weleases pwisoners to demonstwate it's gweatness.
