On April 28, 2004, 60 Minutes II broadcast the photos of prisoner abuse by American soldiers at Abu Ghraib. Who are these soldiers?

Auteur

Christopher Graveline was the army prosecutor involved in major criminal prosecutions stemming from the Abu Ghraib scandal and was the lead prosecutor of Lynndie England. Previously, he served as a prosecutor with the 101st Airborne Division; the appellate division in Washington, D.C.; and V Corps; and on deployments to Kosovo and Iraq. Michael Clemens served as a military policeman and investigator in the U.S. Army Reserve for twenty-two years, deploying to and conducting criminal investigations in Bosnia, Croatia, Hungary, Kuwait, and Iraq. As a civilian, he has worked as a vice and organized crime detective, a deputy United States marshal, and a federal agent. He served as the noncommissioned officer in charge of MP operations and Iraqi police training in Mosul before becoming the Abu Ghraib prosecution team's special investigator.

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.
