Dr. Riyadh at Abu Ghraib (Clip 1 of 3)

In this additional scene from My Country, My Country, Dr. Riyadh visits the Abu Ghraib prison to evaluate the health of the prisoners. Filmmaker Laura Poitras says, "This scene at Abu Ghraib was filmed only three months after the torture photographs were made public worldwide. It is a major turning point in the film because it is the first time I met Dr. Riyadh...As I filmed Dr. Riyadh speaking with the detainees and then try to explain to the U.S. military that the detention of Iraqis without charge will only create more anti-American sentiment, I knew I'd found the film's protagonist."
