Heroes & Pioneers: IAN FISHBACK

Rowley, Coleen
May 2006
Time International (South Pacific Edition);5/8/2006, Issue 18, p87
The article focuses on U.S. Army Captain Ian Fishback, who blew whistle about the torture of Iraqi war prisoners by U.S. armed forces in Iraq. Fishback downplayed his heroism as nothing more than supporting clear standards in accordance with U.S. values. Undaunted by arguments that explicit anti-torture standards would limit the U.S. President's ability to wage war and by a commander's warning to "remember the honor of the unit was at stake," Fishback persevered to restore true honor.
