BAGHDAD, IRAQ - JULY 19: Iraqi men stand in a filthy bathroom in an Iraqi government holding pen July 19, 2007 at Forward Operating Base Justice, a joint US-Iraqi base in Baghdad, Iraq. Nearly a thousand 'detainees' are held in a series of rooms at the detention center, in an area intended to temporarily hold 300. Many have been held for months without trials or hearings. A human-rights observer employed by the U.S. government has repeatedly complained about the conditions, with problems including overcrowding, intermittent meals, backed up sewage, and long-term detentions in a short-term facility, but conditions have remained the same.
