Summary:

Using FOIA, the American Civil Liberties Union obtained 515 claims filed by Iraqi civilians against the U.S. Army for wrongful death, injury or damage, most from 2005. The documents reflect personal family loss, and denials of compensation for mostly technical reasons, which may help explain the anger that many Iraqis express toward the United States, rather than gratitude for toppling Saddam Hussein, the Baltimore Sun reported.
