Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib (P.S.)

Seymour M. Hersh

Since September eleven, 2001, Seymour M. Hersh has riveted readers -- and outraged the Bush management -- along with his explosive tales in The New Yorker, together with his headline-making items at the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. Now, Hersh brings jointly what he has realized, besides new reporting, to reply to the serious query of the final 4 years: How did the USA get from the transparent morning while planes crashed into the realm alternate heart to a divisive and soiled warfare in Iraq?

In Chain of Command, Hersh takes an unflinching glance at the back of the general public tale of the warfare on terror and into the lies and obsessions that led the USA into Iraq. Hersh attracts on assets on the optimum degrees of the yankee executive and intelligence group, in international capitals, and at the battlefield for an unheard of view of a severe bankruptcy in America's fresh background. In a brand new afterword, he evaluations the government's failure to thoroughly examine prisoner abuse -- at Abu Ghraib and in different places -- and punish these in charge. With an advent through The New Yorker's editor, David Remnick, Chain of Command is a devastating portrait of an management blinded via ideology and of a president whose judgements have made the area a extra risky position for America.
