GHOSTS OF ABU GHRAIB
“If there were no photographs, there would be no Abu Ghraib.”- Javal Davis, former MP at Abu Ghraib.
[tag]HBO[/tag]‘s “[tag]Ghosts of Abu Ghraib[/tag]” uncovers truths about the torture practices of the American military in Iraq. You might think you couldn’t be more enraged or disillusioned by this administration. Wait until you watch this.
It’s an amazing, troubling piece of work in which you’ll hear from some of the participants in the infamous photographs, as well as detainees that were systematically tortured. Many of them were held for extended periods of time and then released without ever being charged.
I heard the saying about ‘killing the country to save the country’. This documentary sadly demonstrates that. It’s painful to watch but it truly is a must-see film.
