The propaganda war in Iraq is proving to be one-sided. Resistance groups are recruiting ordinary Iraqis with footage and tales of American atrocities. The issue of the 9500 detainees being held indefinitely by the coalition forces without charge or trial is a major complaint of those who support the resistance. There are stories that clearly inflame many Iraqis. The main prison at Abu Ghraib on the outskirts of Baghdad was the site of pitched battles last weekend as insurgents tried to fight their way in to free the prisoners kept there.
