Iraq War Retrospective - 19 Mar 2013
Recent and archive images relating to the Iraq war – the initial 2003 invasion of Iraq and the fighting and violence that ensued after. The U.S. completed its final withdrawal of troops in December 2011, but insurgency attacks that have emerged since the war continue to afflict the country.

This package is sent ahead of the tenth anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, which began on March 19, 2003.

U.S. Marine Corp Assaultman Kirk Dalrymple watches as a statue of Iraq's President Saddam Hussein falls in central Baghdad April 9, 2003. U.S. troops pulled down a 20-foot (six
metre) high statue of President Saddam Hussein in central Baghdad on Wednesday and Iraqis danced on it in contempt for the man who ruled them with an iron grip for 24 years. In scenes reminiscent of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Iraqis earlier took a sledgehammer to the marble plinth under the statue of Saddam. Youths had placed a noose around the statue's neck and attached the rope to a U.S. armoured recovery vehicle.

picture obtained by ABC News and released May 19, 2004 shows a man identified as Sgt. Charles Graner posing over the body of detainee Manadel a-Jamadi in Abu Ghraib prison. According to testimony from Spc. Jason Kenner, obtained by ABC News, the man was brought to the prison by US Navy Seals in good health. Kenner said he saw extensive bruising on the detainee's body when he was brought out of the showers, dead. Kenner says the body was packed in ice during a "battle" between CIA and military interrogators over who should dispose of the body. The Justice Department opened an investigation into this death and four others today following a referral from the CIA. The photo was taken by Sgt. Charles Fredrick who in e-mails to his family has asked why the people responsible for the prisoner's death were not being prosecuted in the same manner that he is. Pictures of the Year 2004
