ABSTRACT
The photographs of the abuse and ritual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners held by the U.S. troops in Abu Ghraib gaol have united the international community in outrage and horror, and rightly so. Had the world had similar pictorial evidence of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's vile crimes against humanity, U.S. President George W. Bush would have had more support for his illegal invasion. However, these were not crimes perpetrated by Saddam, or any other Middle Eastern despot, these depraved deeds were the work of American servicemen and women who claim such behaviour was widespread and sanctioned at high levels. Now, it emerges problems in the U.S.-run detention system in Iraq had been reported by numerous former prisoners, Iraqi lawyers, human rights activists and the International Committee for the Red Cross, months ago.
