Description - Fixing Hell by Larry C. James

In April 2004, the world was shocked by the brutal pictures of beatings, dog attacks, sex acts and the torture of prisoners held at Abu Ghraib in Iraq. As the story broke and the world began to learn about the extent of the horrors that occurred there, the US Army despatched Col. Larry James to Abu Ghraib with an overwhelming assignment: to dissect this catastrophe, fix it, and prevent it from ever happening again. A nationally well-known and respected Army Psychologist, Col. James's expertise (including a previous deployment to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba) made him the one individual capable of taking on this enormous task. Through Col. James's own experience on the ground, readers will see the tightrope military personnel must walk while fighting in the still new battlefield of the war on terror, the challenge of serving as both a doctor/healer and combatant soldier, and what can (and must) be done to ensure that interrogations are safe, moral, ethical, and effective. An insightful and intense personal narrative, Fixing Hell shows readers Abu Ghraib as they've never seen it before.
