Rumsfeld: US Will Not Permit Hijacking of Iraqi Liberation
By Lawrence Morahan
CNSNews.com Senior Staff Writer
April 25, 2003

The Pentagon (CNSNews.com) - Demonstrations on Iraq's streets are a sign Iraqis are celebrating the right to free speech for the first time in decades and should not be seen by neighboring Iran as an opportunity to send its people into the country to "transform Iraq in Iran's image," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Friday.
"We will not allow the Iraqi people's democratic transition to be hijacked by those who might wish to install another form of dictatorship," Rumsfeld said at a press briefing.
\tx3960 Partially under the leadership of Shiite extremists from Iran, Shiite demonstrators in Iraq apparently surprised the Bush administration this week by using their newfound freedom to stage anti-American protests and push for a leading role in a post-Saddam Hussein government.
Senior U.S. officials have warned Tehran repeatedly to stay out of the conflict.
"There's no question but that the government of Iran has encouraged people to go into the country and that they have people in the country attempting to influence the country," Rumsfeld said Friday.
Shiites in Iraq likely will not permit themselves to be governed by Shiites from Iran, who are Persians, Rumsfeld said.
"My guess is that the Iraqi people will prefer to be governed by Iraqis and not by Persians," he said.
In the hunt for officials of Saddam Hussein's regime, the United States now has taken into custody 12 of Iraq's 55 most wanted, including Tariq Aziz, the former deputy prime minister and confidante of Hussein, as well as a number of other officials who were not on the original list, Rumsfeld said.
"Most are being apprehended with the help of ordinary Iraqis. I expect that - with the help of the Iraqi people - many more will be captured in the days ahead," he said.
Aziz, who was number 43 on the list, gave himself up in Baghdad Thursday night. Since Aziz is the highest-ranking leader of the regime to be taken into custody, officials hope he can provide security forces with information on the whereabouts of Saddam Hussein and his two sons, along with the location of weapons of mass destruction.
Aziz clearly was a very senior person in the regime, Rumsfeld said. "We intend to discuss with him whatever it is he's willing to discuss with us," he said.
Along with the Iraqis, coalition forces also have taken into custody suspects of other nationalities, Rumsfeld said.
"We have acquired, scooped up, have custody of a large number of people, Iraqi people, even some non-Iraqis. We've had a number of Syrians and other nationals that were in there, doing things they shouldn't have been doing," he said.
Rumsfeld estimated the number of suspects and detainees to be between 7,000 and 7,500, who are being held in two or three prisoner of war camps at various locations in Iraq. Rumsfeld said he did not favor sending former officials such as Aziz to the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
However, "we're keeping the hard cases separate for the most part," he noted. "We are systematically going through the less hard cases and releasing people," including regular Iraqi soldiers who surrendered.
"As others have been brought in, we've been moving others out," he said.
The detainees are being interrogated by inter-agency teams, "and they are, in fact, providing information that's useful," Rumsfeld said
Asked about the remaining suspects, Rumsfeld said: "I'm going to guess some got over some border and are finding haven some place. I would guess that still others we've found and still others are in the country in various places, probably trying to be inconspicuous, and we'll eventually find them."
Two US Servicemen Killed in Afghanistan
Thirty-seven days into Operation Iraqi Freedom, life in Iraq is getting back to normal, reported Gen. Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who accompanied Rumsfeld.
Still, "coalition forces continue to encounter pockets of resistance from Iraqi paramilitary forces and foreign fighters, but these threats are being dealt with as they come up, one by one," Myers said.
Responding to criticism that the coalition forces committed war crimes by dropping cluster bombs in civilian areas in Baghdad, Myers said the allies had found one incident of collateral damage caused by a cluster bomb.
Coalition forces dropped nearly 1,500 cluster bombs of varying types during Operation Iraqi Freedom; most were precision-guided. An initial review of all cluster munitions used and the targets they were used on indicates that 26 of approximately 1,500 hit targets within 1,500 feet of civilian neighborhoods, Myers reported.
"There's been only one recorded case of collateral damage from cluster munitions noted so far," he said.
U.S. forces used cluster munitions against surface-to-surface missiles, radar sites, air defense sites, surface-to-air missiles, regime mobile communications, aircraft, armor, artillery, troops and other select military targets, he said.
Because the regime put many military assets in populated areas and then fired on coalition forces from those locations, the allies bombed those targets, in some cases knowing there would be a chance of potential collateral damage, Myers said.
"These are tough choices, and it's unfortunate that we had to make those choices about hitting targets in civilian areas, but as we've said before as well, war is not a tidy affair. It's a very ugly affair, and this enemy had no second thoughts about putting its own people at risk," he said.
In Afghanistan, two U.S. servicemen were killed and a number of others were wounded in a firefight with about 20 militants Friday, Myers said. Some Afghan soldiers also were wounded in the action, which took place near Shkin.
