    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military on Tuesday denied that Israel had been involved in any interrogations of prisoners held in Iraq.
    The comment came after a U.S. Army general, once in charge of Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison, said on Saturday that she met an Israeli interrogator during her time there, appearing to confirm speculation that Israel might have helped the U.S.-led coalition.

    "I can definitely say that ... Israel has not been involved in interrogations here in any way, to include providing interrogators," Army Lt. Col. Barry Johnson, a spokesman for the U.S. detainee operations in Iraq, said in an e-mail response to a query from Reuters.

    Army Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, who was responsible for Iraqi prisons at the time photographs were taken showing naked Iraqi detainees being abused and sexually humiliated by the U.S. military, told the BBC in an interview that she met the Israeli at a Baghdad interrogation center.

    "He was clearly from the Middle East, and he said: 'Well I do some of the interrogation here and of course I speak Arabic, but I'm not an Arab. I'm from Israel,"' she told BBC radio.

    I don't know much about this, so I guess I'm actually asking for info on this.

    Kind of rediculous how the media jumps to conclusions.

    I guess it would be impossible to have a Jewish American as a guard with a tatoo .

    :rolleyes:

    There is a Bible edict that forbids tatooing one's own body.

    I can use Photo Shop to put a tatoo on the Pope's forehead with the number 666. Does that make it real?

    The Pentagon denies it. Well, that settles it for me!
