Al-Qaida in Iraq in 2007

In 2007, Al-Qaida in Iraq was responsible for 4,552 attacks against civilians, 3,870 civilian murders, and 17,815 injuries, according to briefing slides posted on the Internet by the Multi-National Forces Iraq.

The slides offer a fascinating glimpse inside the operations of AQI, and the moral depths to which its members will sink. For example, the slides include a look at a grisly AQI torture manual, complete with illustrated instructions on how to drill through a hand, as well as a picture of two Iraqi girls injured in AQI’s April bombing of the Kirkuk Girls Primary School.
