‘WikiLeaked body count files writing true history of Iraq’

Iraq’s prime minister says the latest WikiLeaks revelations are a move to derail his chances of forming a government – by linking him to death squads. The latest WikiLeaks files allege abuse by Iraqi security forces – some of which happened after Nouri al-Maliki became prime minister in 2006. The Premier’s office denies he had death squads under his command, and suspect the timing of the military leak is designed to weaken his fragile control. Middle East expert James Denselow, from King’s College in London, says the Iraqi Premier’s claims are groundless.
