Free Speech Radio News – May 19, 2004

More than 700 US Troops have died on Iraq soil since George Bush made that
speech. During that same time, soldiers in America’s "Coalition of the Willing" have killed more than 7,000 Iraqis. … Photographs have surfaced showing severe torture in America’s Abu Grahib, where occupation forces hold some 15,000 prisoners for supporting the resistence. In this special hour long edition of Free Speech Radio News, we’ll be taking a look at how US occupation forces succeeded in alienating the majority of Iraq’s 25 million people, A people who overwelmingly supported America after the removal of Saddam Hussein. Our correspondent on the ground is Aaron Glantz.
