Some of those implicated officials included Abdel-Karim Fadhil, Al-Maliki’s senior security advisor, his brother and a nephew, all of whom allegedly helped the al-Qaeda terrorists escape in return for cash.

Also implicated in the Basra escape was Brigadier Ali Fadel Omran, a Baghdad military commander. Unfortunately, Omran was unavailable for comment on his purported role having fled the country days before the report’s release.

For Maliki, the disclosures come at a time when he has already been under mounting criticism for filling those ministries and top security posts with his corrupt cronies and supporters.

Unfortunately, helping terrorists out of jail hasn’t been solely an Iraqi problem. Throughout the Islamic world, incarcerated terrorists and militants have been breaking out of prisons in record numbers in 2011, often aided by corrupt government and prison officials.

For example, in January and February 2011 during the unrest in Egypt, thousands of prisoners escaped from Egyptian jails with, in many cases, overt assistance from Egyptian police and security forces. Many of the escapees were from Hamas and Hezbollah, including 22 Hezbollah terrorists who had been convicted of planning attacks on ships in the Suez Canal and on Egyptian and Israeli tourist sites.

In April 2011, in what Afghan President Hamid Karzai admitted was an inside job, nearly 500 Taliban prisoners broke out of Afghanistan’s Sarposa prison through a 1200 foot tunnel that took five months to dig.

Finally, in June 2011 over 60 al-Qaeda insurgents, 57 of whom had been convicted of terrorism charges, escaped from a jail in southern Yemen. In a coordinated assault, gunmen attacked the prison from the outside just as the prisoners were about to flee in order to divert the guards’ attention from the escape.

Unfortunately for most Iraqis, the recent insurgent catch-and-release allegations come as al-Qaeda and other Iraqi militants are in the midst of a violent escalation of attacks, including bombings and assassinations on government and civilian targets.

In July 2011 alone, that campaign of violence produced the killing of 159 Iraqi civilians, 77 Iraqi police, and 44 Iraqi soldiers. Moreover, 199 civilians, 135 police officers and 119 soldiers were also wounded in those July attacks.

More importantly, June 2011 was reported as the deadliest month for US soldiers in Iraq in two years. During that time, 15 American soldiers were killed, 14 of them in combat. As the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, Stuart Bowen Jr., recently told Congress, “Iraq remains an extraordinarily dangerous place to work…It is less safe, in my judgment, than 12 months ago.”

Unfortunately, with a growing number of re-circulated terrorists onto the landscape — aided by those in the Iraqi government — the danger promises to become only greater.

    Thanks for reporting on this. It will no doubt go unreported in the lamestream press.

    Those in our leftwing hijacked and co-opted State Department and military establishment that pushed these extremely counterproductive fantasy based nation-building missions in Afghanistan and Iraq will also no doubt ignore these inevitable outcomes of their stupidity because it is exceedingly embarrassing for them to say the least.

    Indeed, the last thing any of those mentally handicapped loons want to do is shine the light on exactly how incredibly incompetent and stupid they all are and as a consequence they will never ever learn from their unhinged major strategic blunders. Nor will they ever admit that they were wrong, since they have too much invested and too much is at stake.

    As a matter of fact, the only thing the mentally incompetent morons that pushed these incredibly counterproductive fantasy based nation-building missions in Afghanistan and Iraq managed to accomplish, was to help the Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq to recover faster than otherwise so that they could resume pursuing their obligatory duty of fighting jihad in the cause of Allah against unbelievers to make Islam supreme sooner.

    We need to get out of both of these Islamic hellholes sooner rather than later because both of those thoroughly misguided and exceedingly counterproductive missions were based on fantasy-based political correct myths and unhinged assumptions such as Islam is a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists.

    Iran will invade Iraq and take over all the oil soon after the US leaves. This now becomes major problem for all of the Middle East the US too, because this would give tremendous power to Iran who in addition, will likely have nuclear weapons.

    • ObamaYoMoma

      The notion that we could lift up and democratize a Muslim country like Iraq, as if Islam is just another innocuous religion, was ludicrous. The notion that we could do it without also ousting the ruling Mullahs of Iran was literally insane.

    Well, does everybody feel good about all the blood and treasure we have expended in this dirt-bag country for nothing? Does anybody really feel that all this made a difference? Was all the dead and maimed lives worth it? I think NOT!!!

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Sadam's spirit lives on in death and destruction which will settle down to
    persistent corruption in later days when Iraqi's are being enslaved by
    a new and bitter dictator. Can we say we made any friends in Iraq, Afghanistan,
    Kuwait et. al., nope. Only where we can be used are we looked for and
    probably paid for and that is all it is with the exception that the blood of our
    people had to be shed when large weapons (shhhhhh!–nukes) would have
    paid for themselves in American lives saved………………………….William

    Oh no! Israel had better call for the destruction of 20 countries before these escapees throw a rock at an Israeli drone vehicle!

        Get on the horn!!! Warn America! They are going to set up a sharia zone inside one of the Halacha zones!

        • MixMChess

          There is no such thing as a Halacha zone. Nice try with the antisemitism ploy though.

          • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

            I have been to a Halacha Zone. Israelis purchased the Boston Common for Israeli Independence Day and subjected all non Jews to TSA screening. Only Kahanist terrorists were allowed. It sure was weird to see a steel barrier erected around Boston Common so that the highest bidder could lay claim to a public area to celebrate a foreign independence day and treat Americans like second class citizens.

    • MixMChess

      Israel has never called for the destruction of any country or peoples. Get a clue.

      • http://www.contextflexed.com Flipside

        Actually, they have: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany_Must_Perish!

        And before you trip all over yourself trying to say that Theodore N. Kaufman is not Israel, consider that the Der Judenstaat was published in 1896, the World Zionist Organization convened in 1897, and Germany Must Perish is THE Hasbara publication that precipitated the gold star policy in concentration camps. The gold star policy of concentration camps is what is always referred to as the definitive justification for Israel, and yet Germany Must Perish laid out the propaganda for Jewish genocide as a Mad Lib.
