The General’s Report

Seymour M. Hersh has an excellent article about torture at Abu Ghraib in The New Yorker which can be accessed here. I will only paste a portion of the article, which is a quote of now retired Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba:

“There was no doubt in my mind that this stuff”—the explicit images—“was gravitating upward. It was standard operating procedure to assume that this had to go higher. The President had to be aware of this.” He said that Rumsfeld, his senior aides, and the high-ranking generals and admirals who stood with him as he misrepresented what he knew about Abu Ghraib had failed the nation.

My name is Stephanie and I volunteer with an organization called Survivors of Torture, Intl, which provides services for refugees and asylees in the San Diego area who have escaped torture in their home countries. I read your blog and thought you might be interested in this article:


I hope you find it worth reading and sharing with others, especially today, the UN International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. Your blog is great--thanks for spreading awareness of an issue that many don't know much about.
