Collateral Damage: America's War Against Iraqi Civilians

by Chris Hedges Laila Al-Arian

The testimonies of fifty veteran soldiers -- many of who remain deeply traumatized by their experiences -- uncover how the very conduct of the war and occupation have turned the American forces into agents of terror for most Iraqis. "Collateral Damage" is organized around key military operations-- Convoys, Checkpoints, Detentions, Raids, Suppressive Fire, and Hearts and Minds. Military convoys traveling at tremendous speeds through towns have become trains of death. Civilians are routinely run over or shot to death. Soldiers fire upon Iraqi vehicles with impunity at checkpoints. Late-night detentions based on shoddy intelligence terrify women, traumatize children, and radicalize the young men caught in their dragnet. These soldiers have found the moral courage to speak out about the true nature of a war that has become one long, unchecked atrocity, and has given rise to the instability, sectarian violence and chaos that we witness today in Iraq.
