A Different Abu Ghraib Story

Filed under: International — Bunker @ 7:14 pm

The Heritage Foundation has a link to this film on altruism in the US.

Don North’s documentary Remembering Saddam is the story of seven Baghdad merchants who incurred the wrath of Saddam. Nine years ago, after spending a year in the infamous Abu Ghraib prison, their right hands were surgically removed as part of an effort to blame small businessmen for Iraq’s collapsing economy. Each man tells his story and friends, wives, and children recall their experiences under the former dictator.

The film is 40 minutes long, so find the time to watch. You probably won’t see it on television. No newsroom will touch it. Daniel Henninger has an article for you if you can’t spare the time.
