Iraq, Abu Gharib Hi Pakistan and Asharqalawsat Janis Karpinsky, a U.S. General in Iraq, revealed that she has got an order from Rumsfeld to add 3800 persons to the current prisoners. She said that these people's condition was not clear earlier. Some 4,400 have been arrested for security reasons, said Brigadier General Janis Karpinski. We got an order from the secretary of defence (Donald Rumsfeld) to categorise" the 3,800 about a month ago, said Brig Karpinski, without giving details about who these detainees were or when they were captured. The 3,800 recently categorized prisoners were being held in the area of north-central Iraq controlled by the US Army's Fourth Infantry Division, she said, as US military police held "Abu Gharib Media Day" at the prison. "We were securing them. We didn't want people to be confused" about their status before they were classified, she said. Asked if they had any rights or had access to their families or legal help while they were being "secured", she said: "It's not that they don't have rights ... They have fewer rights than EPWs (enemy prisoners of war)." But she added that they had not requested any such privileges. Brig Karpinski said the categorising of these prisoners had been mentioned by US officials to reporters but "had not been reported". "We have the opportunity to interview them now," she said, explaining that this could not be done before because they had not been categorized. Reuters reported on September 11th: The U.S. military said on Thursday it was holding 3,800 Iranian rebel detainees in eastern Iraq and denied that the People's Mujahideen was still mounting cross-border raids into Iran. Giving the first official figure for the number of MEK fighters being held, Sanchez said the roughly 3,800 detainees had been "separated from their weapons systems" and were undergoing "screening" to determine their "defined end state". It's necessary to tell that Bush administration has been discussing the condition of this group in recent days.
