Free Example of 'Standard Operation Procedure' Essay

Standard Operation Procedure. The movie is mainly focused on the policies, war &public opinion. It shows the examination of the unintended consequences of the Iraqi war with a focus on events at Abu Ghraib prison which began to appear in global media in 2004. The prison quickly became notorious for the shocking photos of the abuse and torture of terror suspects by military men and women. Ultimately, it is the story of soldiers who believed they were defending democracy but found themselves plunged into an unimagined nightmare. Lynddie England, who saw the holding dog leashes around prisoner's necks, pointing at their genitals and laughing, was one of misconduct observed in Abu Ghraib prison.

During that time, she as slime and while she is no sweetheart by any definition, it is clear that she, and some of the other enlisted men and women, were sacrificed by the higher-ups in order to protect themselves.  Ms. England and the others were interviewed and, the picture becomes at least a little bit clearer but never in totality. One of the lead interrogators bemoans the fact that we put a bunch of know-nothing kids in a position where they had no chance but to fail. They were not trained in interrogation.

They were not trained in much of anything. Yet, they routinely questioned prisoners, assuming that information could be extracted from them. We now know that at least some of the prisoners had nothing to do with terrorism. They were not pure innocents. Some were rapists and committers of other 'normal' criminal acts.
