Do you know this man?

Baghdad Dweller


August 2,2005

Don’t bother looking, searching and thinking, you will know him better from this photo ( http://www.bintjbeil.com/articles/2004/en/abugraib1.html ), the man with a grey hair is only 44 years old and his name Ali-Al-Kaysi.

He tells about the day when he became an image without name or story, before that he was just a number 101716 and then they gave him a nickname "Colin Paul", his colleague became "Dracula" and the other one is "Wolfman", they been categorized as "Big Fish" prisoners.

When the first photo published he didn’t believed that it was him, maybe one of his colleagues but he later he was sure it was him from his left arm because it was injured when they took him to prison, jailers took out the bandages and started to kick him on the wounds of his arm until it got gangrene.

He remember the day when they took this image, after 15 days of torture and being naked, they gave him a blanket to cover his nakedness and this stage is know as "One Blanket" , with humour he said "I got the congratulations from other prisoners because I entered this stage "one Blanket" very fast, most of them stay naked for six months".

Didn’t had the time to "enjoy" this stage for long, "they took me to a room much bigger than my cell, ten integrators were waiting for me, I must stand on wooden box used by the army to keep food in it".

They connected my finger tips with electric cables and a bag on my head and told me "if you fall on the ground we will shock you again", they switched on, I felt that my eyes are going out it’s place, started to bite my tong till blood came out from my mouth, an army doctor check me and said that I am OK and the blood is from the tong…not from the stomach, so they shocked me again, they did it three times. Many pictures been taken and I don’t know which one is published.
Soldiers carry their cameras always and photograph every detail, they change pictures as tourists postcards.
In the beginning we didn’t understand why they aim their cell phones on us, cell-phones were new in Iraq, we didn’t knew that it can be used as cameras, they kept making fun of us and kept photographing.

This is a translation of this [Arabic] article published on Al-Hayat newspaper:
