"I was an interrogator at Abu Ghraib. I tortured."


Don't miss this op-ed in the New York Times, by former Iraq interrogator Eric Fair.

"Abu Ghraib dominates every minute of every day for me. In early 2004, workers inside Abu Ghraib were scrambling to cover the murals of Saddam Hussein with a coat of yellowish paint. I accidentally leaned up against one of those walls. I still wear the black fleece jacket with the faded stain. I still smell the paint. I still hear the sounds. I still see the men we called detainees."
