Michael Clemens Reveals ‘Secrets of Abu Ghraib’
Clemens was on active duty in Iraq when the charges were
broadcast worldwide. He served as a
military policeman and investigator for the Army for more than 22 years before
becoming the prosecution team’s special investigator at Abu Ghraib. For his
successful fact-finding mission, Clemens received the Meritorious Service Medal
and the Legion of Merit, the armed forces’ sixth-highest award, which is given
for outstanding service and accomplishment. No longer with the Army, Clemens, a
native of New Berlin, Wis., now works as a federal agent in Milwaukee.
The Secrets of Abu Ghraib Revealed: American Soldiers on Trial is a frank look at a disturbing part of our history that probes the minds of the abusers and the scholarship of warfare, and scrutinizes how these unforgettable images have impacted the conflicts of today. Clemens will discuss his book at Boswell Book Co. on Aug. 5 at 7 p.m.
