First revealed to the world through impromptu photographs taken by U.S. soldiers stationed within the facility, this documentary investigates the story and causes behind the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. Involving apparent wide-scale abuse and torture of prisoners, the photos forced attention on the decisions and actions that turned the once-notorious Iraqi prison into an even more notorious U.S.-run detainment center. One of the most dramatic moments in recent U.S. military history is examined through interviews with participants and dramatic reenactments

One woman's army : the Commanding General of Abu Ghraib tells her story by Janis L Karpinski( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inside story of the first female general ever to command troops in a combat zone, and of how the scandal of Abu Ghraib destroyed her career. It traces the rise of a groundbreaking woman from the Republican suburbs of New Jersey to a commanding position in a man's army. She earned her insignia as a master parachutist, received the Bronze Star in the first Gulf War, and as the leader chosen for a special mission to train Arab women as a fighting force in the Middle East. In Iraq, she and her 3,400 soldiers faced the challenge of rebuilding a civilian prison system. She describes how Saddam refused to believe she could be in charge of his incarceration. In the end, she accepts her share of responsibility for the abuses of Abu Ghraib, but raises the question of why she was the most prominent target of the investigations.--From publisher description

Former Brigadier General Janis Karpinski talks about her memoir, One Woman's Army: The Commanding General of Abu Ghraib Tells her Story. After 25 years in the army, she was put in command of the soldiers in charge of the incarceration of Iraqi detainees, including Saddam Hussein.

Televised pictures of Iraqi prisoners of war being abused by American soldiers continue to reverberate around the world. How could they do this? Some have said that the guards were not adequately trained. But how could this happen without more people, specifically the people in charge, knowing about it? And if it was ordered by their superiors, or simply tolerated, who's responsible?
