"The stain is ours, because whatever else the Iraq war was about, it was always, above all, about America--about the projection of America's force and America's image into the world."
Every war has its share of heroism, atrocities, and humiliations. But the photographs that emerged from the Abu Ghraib prison, which had previously housed Saddam's prisoners, put America's shameful treatment of Iraqi detainees on a global stage. Acclaimed documentarian Errol Morris interviewed many of those involved for his documentary "Standard Operating Procedure." Using his interview footage, The New Yorker's Philip Gourevitch wrote this companion book, which should be required reading for those who still believe in the justness of our mission in Iraq or that democracy can be imposed by an occupying army. Also see the books "Chain of Command" and "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" and the documentary "Taxi to the Dark Side."
