On 20 March 2003, the United States initiated a multinational invasion of Iraq for the purposes of deposing then-President Saddam Hussein. During the conflict, American soldiers tortured Iraqi prisoners-of-war.
Res Publica, an organization dedicated to liberal values in the United States, has apologised for the use of torture and other atrocities committed by Americans in Iraq. As part of its campaign, it has collected apologies from a number of individual Americans in a video format, which the organisation plans to air on Arab television networks.
The campaign is similar to that of Faithful America (see 2004.0117.01).
