Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

Thursday, August 7, 2008

GHOSTS OF ABU GHRAIB strongly suggests that, far from being an unauthorized, isolated event by rank-and-file soldiers acting on their own initiative, the physical and psychological torture employed at the prison was an inevitable outgrowth of military and government policies that were implemented in a climate of fear and chaos, inadequate training and insufficient resources.

The interviews with soldiers who took part in and observed the torture at Abu Ghraib show them to be intelligent and articulate young men and women, not gun-happy, sadistic torturers - challenging what viewers may think they know about what took place at the prison.

Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

This HBO documentary produced and directed by Rory Kennedy, daringly approaches a scandal that hardly anyone wants to see reexamined, least of all, one can safely assume, the Bush administration and the Pentagon.

While the White House and Pentagon claimed that the situation at Abu Ghraib was "a kind of animal house on the night shift," other on-site participants and observers maintain that the abuses at Abu Ghraib were part of a general pattern of a "gloves off" interrogation policy that had been put in place after 9/11.

“Ghosts of Abu Ghraib”

    Torture, anyway you look at it, is cruel and inhuman. We don't get away with it in our US prisons (well at least it's not documented). All the men and women involved in these acts at Abu Ghraib knew this was wrong but were not strong enough to rebel against the requests of their superiors. Sorry, but there are no excuses.
