Listen to Seymour Hersh talk about Abu Ghraib on Tuesday's Fresh Air

Listen to Investigative Reporter Seymour Hersh

His new book is Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib.

He won a Pulitzer prize 35 years ago when he first reported the story of the massacre at My Lai in Vietnam.

I'm always interested to read all arguments about why we must torture people. Be sure to ask anyone who is pro-torture, "Are you a Christian?"

He says the guys at the top, Rice and Rumsfield, knew there were serious problems in the prisons and did nothing about it.

Of course the guys at the top knew what was going on, at least at some level of detail. I think the brass chose to ignore what was going on in the prisons, because allowing it to continue would allow a particularly insidious ideal to continue: all mulsims are evil and despicable, and they must be "taught" who is the true power in the universe.

Sorta gets to the heart of why I hate the Shrub as much as I do.
