Family of Iraq abuse whistleblower receives threats WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Relatives of the U.S. soldier who sounded the alarm about abuse of Iraqi detainees at Abu Ghraib prison said on Monday the family was living in protective custody because of death threats against them. Reservist military police officer Staff Sgt. Joseph Darby alerted U.S. Army investigators about the abuse by fellow soldiers of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad, a move his wife says has angered people in their community in western Maryland. "People were mean, saying he was a walking dead man, he was walking around with a bull's eye on his head. It was scary," said Bernadette Darby from Corriganville, Maryland. Mrs. Darby said it was difficult living in protective custody, and she missed her privacy. She did not say who was providing the protection. "There's always someone with you," she told ABC's "Good Morning America" show. Despite the threats, Mrs. Darby she believed her husband made the right choice exposing the abuse.
