Palace of the End: Inside Abu Ghraib prison, Confessions of an Interrogator

Availability: Ready to download

Scarcely two hundred soldiers are cobbled together in a remote post between Baghdad and Fallujah after months of exhausting heat, squalor, and privation. They are isolated inside the Sunni Triangle near an insignificant town called Abu Ghraib. They are both protected and trapped by the walls of a prison that had once been a monolith of Saddam’s ruthless regime, a compound Scarcely two hundred soldiers are cobbled together in a remote post between Baghdad and Fallujah after months of exhausting heat, squalor, and privation. They are isolated inside the Sunni Triangle near an insignificant town called Abu Ghraib. They are both protected and trapped by the walls of a prison that had once been a monolith of Saddam’s ruthless regime, a compound that had for decades been the grounds of brutal torture and barbaric executions. But soon after Saddam’s overthrow, sadism revisited those haunted confines. This is a dramatic narrative of one soldier’s story of how he got there and what he and his colleagues endured. Palace of the End is a first-hand account of one interrogator’s experience in Operation Iraqi Freedom that ended at Abu Ghraib prison during a time when the scandalous abuses were perpetrated. We’ve all seen the pictures and heard and read the stories – a maelstrom of fact and fiction that was never fully clarified. But what really happened in that rancid eddy in the war on terrorism and elsewhere in Iraq and how did it happen? The reality surrounding the scandal that shocked a nation and impugned the honor of its armed forces and the mission in Iraq is finally coming to light. Palace of the End takes you on a journey to Abu Ghraib prison, a journey that first passed through a squalid detention center called Camp Cropper in the summer of 2003. Travel to the Iranian border on a mission meant to thwart Iranian agents from entering Iraq but resulted in civilians inadvertently herded into a mine field. Enter the interrogation booth and meet dozens of Iraqi detainees, hear their stories, and share their fates. Enter the Palace of the End.
