Standard operating procedure
First revealed to the world through impromptu photographs taken by U.S. soldiers stationed within the facility, this documentary investigates the story and causes behind the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. Involving apparent wide-scale abuse and torture of prisoners, the photos forced attention on the decisions and actions that turned the once-notorious Iraqi prison into an even more notorious U.S.-run detainment center. One of the most dramatic moments in recent U.S. military history is examined through interviews with participants and dramatic reenactments.
