Torture and Truth Summary


Torture and Truth: America, Abu Ghraib and the War on Terror by Mark Danner

The revelations of widespread torture of Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib shocked the world. In this, the first book of its kind, leading investigative journalist Mark Danner reveals just how complicit the US government was (and remains) in allowing and condoning such abuse. Torture and Truth consists of five essays that explain the case and its consequences by Danner, a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books and The New Yorker. The book also features documents all reproduced in full and many published here for the first time that reveal the government's support and approval of abuse of prisoners in Afghanistan, Guatanamo Bay and Iraq, including: *Official translations of previously secret sworn statements by detainees at Abu Ghraib *The Red Cross Report on the Treatment of Prisoners of War by the Coalition Forces *The Taguba Report, the US Army s own inquiry into prisoner abuse *Memos and letters from the highest echelons of the US government White House lawyer Alberto Gonzales, Secretary of State Colin Powell, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and the President himself arguing over whether the Geneva Conventions apply to the conflict with Al Qaeda and beyond. Danner has written a short introduction to each document, explaining its significance.
