Description:
"I examine here the meaning of difference and the construction of the other within the contours of what Mohanty terms the United States' advanced post-colonial capitalist state project at play in Iraq. I use Edward Said's Orientalism and Meyda Yegenoglu's Colonial Fantasies: Towards a Feminist Reading of Orientalism as frameworks for analyzing how the essentializing and dichotomizing discourse of orientalism has justified, facilitated and shaped the torture at Abu Ghraib, the US prison established in Baghdad after the US invasion in 2003" (Nusair 179).
