Summary
  • "Christopher Graveline and Michael Clemens have produced a masterpiece of research and balance on a subject sure to evoke controversy and profound emotion. The nightmare of Abu Ghraib became the nadir of America's efforts in Iraq, yet the truth of what went on at the prison has remained--until now-- clouded by poor media coverage, politics, and the visceral reaction the infamous photos produced ail over the world. Graveline and Clemens are the firsr to provide us a complete picture of what happened at Abu Ghraib. Told will a compelling and sometimes shocking narrative, The Secrets of Abu Ghraib Repealed tanks as the seminal work on the Iraq Wan It is not to be missed."--John R. Bruning, author of The Devil's Sandbox: With the 2nd Battalion, 162nd Infantry at War in Iraq and coauthor of How to Break a Terrorist
  • "The Secrets of Abu Ghraib Revealed is as riveting as the courtroom scene in A Few Good Men. Graveline and Clemens deliver a potent, objective accounting of what actually happened at Abu Ghraib. Rather than preach, wax partisan, or leave the reader with unresolved conspiracy theories, the authors skillfully expose the truth while allowing readers to form their own conclusions. The abuses at Abu Ghraib were a stain on our nation's integrity, but the authors' commitment to investigating the truth has greatly diminished that stain. Any American dissatisfied with conjecture should read this book and discover the truth."--Jon Adler, national president, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association
  • On April 28, 2004, 60 Minutes II broadcast the now-infamous photos of prisoner abuse by American soldiers at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. The news quickly spread worldwide, undermining the U.S. presence in Iraq
  • Despite several Department of Defense investigations and eleven court-martial convictions, important questions remain about the events at Abu Ghraib. Who were these soldiers? Were top administration officials or Army generals involved in the abuses? Were the soldiers simply following orders? Did 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 have 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 into the middle of the investigation and the subsequent trials, revealing one of the darker episodes in American military history. --Book Jacket
