How in On April 28, 2004, 60 Minutes II broadcast the now-infamous photos of prisoner abuse by American soldiers at Abu Ghraib. The news quickly spread worldwide, undermining the U.S. presence in Iraq. Despite several Department of Defense investigations and eleven courts-martial convictions, important questions remain about the events at Abu Ghraib. Who are these soldiers? How involved were top administration officials and army generals in the abuses? Were the soldiers simply following orders? Do these photographs depict a new American interrogation policy? Christopher Graveline and Michael Clemens provide the answers. No one has investigated the true story behind the events at Abu Ghraib as thoroughly as the authors. Only six people had complete knowledge of the Abu Ghraib investigation and prosecutions; Graveline and Clemens are two of them. They give readers unprecedented access to the inner workings of the investigation leading to the trials of PFC Lynndie England, Cpl. Charles Graner, and others. Complete with actual arguments of counsel, testimony, and evidence, this groundbreaking book puts the reader in the middle of the investigation and the subsequent trials, revealing one of the darker episodes in American military history.

    Somewhat interesting read. I was still fairly young when this occurred, so while I remember vaguely that it was in the news, I felt that this was a good, relatively unbiased, review of the facts of the scandal and the subsequent case. That being said, by about 3/4 of the way through, I was ready for a conclusion as I felt it was dragging. Finally, on reaching the conclusion, I felt it somewhat abrupt. Worth a read, but definitely not in my "highly recommended" list. Somewhat interesting read.

    A real life court drama about one of the most infamous cases of the past decade, as told by two of the people who know more about this case than anyone else. As compelling a read as AS FEW GOOD MEN, but true.
