How many U.S. citizens are being detained by the U.S. military in Iraq? ASK THIS | February 28, 2007 Law professor and blogger Steve Vladeck writes that the government is attempting to prevent U.S. courts from reviewing the treatment of U.S. citizens in what is ostensibly U.S. custody in Iraq. Some reporting is needed to determine how many people that is, and how they are being treated.
