Military criminologists who uncovered proof of the supposed atrocities told the year-long examination by the paper and the BBC's Panorama program that seniors leaders concealed it "for political reasons".
An IHAT detective told Panorama: 'The Ministry of Defence had no intention of prosecuting any soldier of whatever rank he was unless it was absolutely necessary, and they couldn't wriggle their way out of it'.
Service of Defense (MoD) said the claims were "false".
An MoD spokesman talked about: "Allegations that the MoD interfered with investigations or prosecution choices bearing on to the habits of United Kingdom forces in Iraq and Afghanistan are groundless".
No case investigated by IHAT or Operation Northmoor has led to a prosecution.
The charges incorporate homicides by a fighter from the first class SAS unit, just as passings in guardianship, beatings, torment and sexual maltreatment of prisoners by individuals from the Black Watch infantry unit.
The probe quoted at least 11 British detectives as saying that they found "credible evidence" of war crimes, with insiders insisting the British soldiers should have been prosecuted for the killings. None of the cases investigated by IHAT or Operation Northmoor resulted in a prosecution.
Then-defence secretary Michael Fallon closed the probes in 2017 before they reached trial after Phil Shiner, a solicitor who had taken over a thousand cases to IHAT, was struck off from practising law amid claims he paid people in Iraq to find clients.

Mr Rogers said some 1.6 million hectares of land have been lost so far - more land loss than the entire 1993/1994 season. The grim conditions saw Sydney beat out Bangkok, Mumbai, and Faridabad, India for poor air quality and pollution.
Pardon International reprimanded the choice at the time and some previous IHAT and Operation Northmoor examiners now affirm Shiner's activities were blamed so as to shut down the request as they discovered bad behavior at elevated levels.
The Sunday Times revealed military analysts found claims of adulterated reports that were "not kidding enough to justify indictments of senior officials".
A senior SAS commander was also referred to prosecutors for attempting to pervert the course of justice, according to leaked documents that had been kept secret by the government.
The newspaper said the revelations could result in a war crimes investigation at the International Criminal Court if Britain was deemed to have failed to hold its military to account.
1 case investigated by IHAT was the taking pictures of an Iraqi policeman by a British soldier on patrol in Basra in 2003. "After careful investigation, overseen by a former chief constable, no Northmoor cases were referred to prosecutors", the spokesperson added.
An MoD spokesman said the Service Police and the Service Prosecuting Authority were investigating, but added: 'Allegations that the MoD interfered with investigations relating to the conduct of United Kingdom forces in Iraq and Afghanistan are untrue'.
Panorama, War Crimes Scandal Exposed is on BBC One at 9pm on Monday 18 November. The independent Service Prosecuting Authority decided not to prosecute any of the cases referred to it.
