A Soldier’s Cost for Exposing Abu Ghraib
Posted on Feb 6, 2007
In this “60 Minutes” segment, Anderson Cooper interviews the former U.S. soldier who brought the Abu Ghraib pictures to light.
Partial transcript from CBS News:
Exposing the truth has not been easy for Joe Darby. He turned in the pictures of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib in Iraq - pictures he discovered purely by accident.
He tells correspondent Anderson Cooper how he came upon those pictures, and how turning them in has changed his life forever - for the worse.
“So I walked up to Graner and I, you know, ‘Hey do you have any pictures?’ And he said ‘Yeah, yeah, hold on.’ Reaches into his computer bag and pulls out two CDs and just hands them to me,” Darby remembers.
