Oak Trees and Acorns

It looks like Iraq's democracy is turning out to be more like American democracy than we expected.
BAGHDAD, Iraq - A top Interior Ministry official said Wednesday the 173 malnourished prisoners found by U.S. forces included all Iraqi sects, playing down allegations of a campaign by Shiite-led security forces to suppress Sunni Arabs ahead of next month's election.

Iraq's president even sounds like ours:
President Jalal Talabani said there was "no place for torture and persecution in the new Iraq" and that anyone involved "would be severely punished."

Can we expect to see a handful of bad apple enlisted personnel in the Iraqi Security Force take the fall for this?
