ImageAfter serving in Iraq, Army Reserve Military Policeman Aidan Delgado, 26, applied for Conscientious Objector status in April, 2003, because war was incompatible with his Buddhist beliefs. He served at Abu Gharaib prison and revealed some of the abuses there to superiors and the media. He was honorably discharged in April 2004 and has been speaking out against the war.

In 2007, Beacon Press published a memoir of his time at Abu Ghraib and his conscientious objection entitled The Sutras of Abu Ghraib. The book is available from Courage to Resist.
