Newsweek has an article telling a few Iraqis' stories:
Ulga and the reporter silently walked through the darkened cells at Haakimiya, which was surprisingly clean, except for the graffiti on the walls. GOD I ASK YOUR MERCY, scratched one prisoner who�d marked 42 days on the walls. SAVE ME, MARY, implored another, presumably a Christian. IN MEMORY OF LUAY AND ABBAS WHO WERE TORTURED, read another.About halfway through this story, I realized my hand was hurting, because it was gripping the edge of my desk so hard I'd scored lines in the palm.
