Abu Ghraib Whistleblower in Protective Custody 2532 E. Brady St., Milwaukee, WI 53202. (Kidding, kidding, I'm pretty sure that address is in Lake Michigan.)

via hilzoy at Obsidian Wings, a GQ article about Joseph Darby, the soldier who turned the Abu Ghraib pictures in to the Army's Criminal Investigation Division. Darby is the only confirmed hero in this story (he was in no way involved in the torture), and he has been pretty much forced to flee his hometown. I hope that he is rewarded for his heroism in the end (I wouldn't mind seeing him as a US Senator from Pennsylvania, especially considering who we have now).
