You know you're winning when Riverbend is in serious flipout mode.
She hates the flag and is appalled at Chalabi's mere existence on the planet.
But she really spits with rage over US soldiers' maltreatment and psychological abuse of members of her beloved Brave Iraqi Mafia who those US soldiers have captured - the maltreatment and psychological abuse having taken place last year, and having been investigated by US Armed Forces with the result that 17 of those soldiers involved in the maltreatment and psychological abuse have been relieved from duty. 6 courtmartialled. Condemnation from everyone in the US and internationally, but most importantly from US Armed Forces.
Maltreatment is making a bunch of naked guys do a prolonged 'stacks on the mill'.
Psychological abuse is telling a hooded man that he is connected to electrodes (just cords) which will be set off if he moves an inch from the platform he is standing on.
Why so much rage for that? Riverbend has nothing good to controbute to her new country.
