“Just a Good Guy…With a Few Bad Habits”

Ghosts of Abu Ghraib

I was on a treadmill yesterday when I happened to see an interview with Rory Kennedy. She is the youngest daughter of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy, and Grand daughter of noted appeaser Joseph P. Kennedy (As U.S. Ambassador to the Court of St. James, Joe was a great friend and advisor of Neville Chamberlain during the days leading up to Munich). Ms. Kennedy’s new “Documentary” Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, premiered recently at the Sundance Film Festival.  

In the interview, Ms. Kennedy spoke of the “extraordinary evil” at Abu Ghraib prison. Her exact quote, taken from a recent New York Magazine interview, is printed here:

Why Abu Ghraib?
I had planned on making a film exploring the question of how ordinary people commit extraordinary acts of evil, and Abu Ghraib kept coming up. It was really with the intention of doing a psychological profile of the MPs —were these people psychopaths? Or was it the pressure of working under these conditions?
 “….exploring the question of how ordinary people commit extraordinary acts of evil….”

What!?! Hey Rory, let’s have a little Show and Tell session, shall we?

Pictures of U.S. Liberation Forces=The Good Guys having some fun at the expense of The Bad Guys
