Media: Abu Ghraib prisoner tells story, joins militants

The story of a former Abu Ghraib prisoner, Dhia al-Shweiri, is covered in the media. Dhia al-Shweiri had been detained in Abu Ghraib twice under Saddam, and once under the US occupation. He claims that previous to US detention, he was supportive of the occupation. While detained he was forced to strip naked and stand in humiliating positions. After leaving US detention, he joined cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's al-Mahdi Army.
