Pictures of the torture

leave a comment »

This is one of the most iconic photographs of the torture that went on in Abu Ghraib.
It shows a man with a hood over his head and a sheet covering his body.
He is placed on a box with wires attached to his fingers, toes and genitals. He was told  that he would be electrocuted if he fell off the box and had to stand there for hours.

Lynndie England

This is one of the most famous photographs in this scandal. Lynndie England holds a leash with a naked Iraqi prisoner on the end of it, who is lying on the floor and looks like he is in pain.

Charles Graner

This picture shows a naked detainee being intimidated by two dogs held back by two soldiers.

It is argued that this was a technique learned for an interrogation team from Guantanamo Bay.

“Another soldier said that interrogators would regularly pass instructions to have dog handlers and military police “scare up” detainees as part of interrogation plans, part of an approved approach that relied on exploiting the fear of dogs.”   [http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/26/AR2005072601792.html accessed on 20/11/2010]  [http://www.guardian.co.uk/Guardian/gallery/image/0,8543,-12604919007,00.html accessed on 20/11/2010]
