Witness one of the worst debacles in American military history: Abu Ghraib.  You’ve seen the photographs on the nightly news.  There’s the naked prisoners and the pyramid of degraded captives.  Not to mention the infamous thumbs-up grin of the young female corporal who stands guard over them all.  This documentary tells the true story of the men and women who crossed the thin line between interrogation and torture.

Standard Operating Procedure takes you behind the bars of the 21st century’s most infamous prison.  Most significantly, it examines the acts that forced a president to apologise to the world.
