Sy Hersh

As Alterman notes, Hersh is unequalled in investigative journalism in America today, and perhaps for all time. He is single-handedly holding this administration accountable and furnishing the truth.

His latest
from the New Yorker. The first graf:

The roots of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal lie not in the criminal inclinations of a few Army reservists but in a decision, approved last year by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, to expand a highly secret operation, which had been focussed on the hunt for Al Qaeda, to the interrogation of prisoners in Iraq. Rumsfeld’s decision embittered the American intelligence community, damaged the effectiveness of élite combat units, and hurt America’s prospects in the war on terror.

Just read it.
