July 27 2005

U.S. kept in Iraq from 12 to 17 thousand people, said at a press conference, Pentagon spokesman Lawrence De Rita.

"It's very raznosherstaya crowd of people where there are criminals and those who can, and should not have been detained, but it takes time to understand this, as they were in the wrong place at the wrong time" - said De Rita .

In turn, the commander of U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Conway said that the U.S. military command did not confirm earlier information that appears that for the last seven months have been killed and captured 50,000 Iraqis.

"I'm afraid I can neither confirm nor deny the accuracy of these figures," - said General Conway.

Earlier, U.S. General Jack Kane said that in the beginning of the year in Iraq was captured and killed 50,000 insurgents. Kane in the recent past was the deputy head of staff of the U.S. Army and went to Iraq at the request of the Pentagon, reports RIA Novosti
