"US intelligence and military police officers in Iraq are routinely freeing dangerous criminals in return for a promise to spy on insurgents.

In one case where we have seen documents, police rescued a doctor after a gun battle with his kidnappers and arrested two of the kidnap gang, who made full confessions. But US military police took over custody of the two men and let them go. The doctor had to flee to Egypt after being threatened by the gang."
