Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

The end credits of this HBO documentary about the Abu Ghraib torture scandal reveal that some of the interviewees were paid, which proves there are other ways to get people to talk. Director Rory Kennedy (Pandemic: Facing AIDS) rounded up some of the military police and intelligence specialists who were punished and fingers the people higher up the chain of command who skated (General Geoffrey Miller, Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez, and U.S. defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld). Her treatment of the story doesn't add much to the public record, but given the willful amnesia of most Americans, this serves as a handy reminder of where the war on terror was headed all along.
