Seymour Hersh's "Chain of Command"

Download Audio
photoSince 9/11, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has been writing revelation after revelation about some of the most important issues of the war on terror. He's written of early missteps in the hunt for al Qaeda, abuses at Guantanamo, and Pentagon "stovepiping" of intelligence.

This spring it was his reports of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib that made headlines around the world. In his new book, "Chain of Command: The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib", Seymour Hersh has a new examination of responsibility for the prisoner abuses. And responsibility, he says, lies at the feet of some of the top officials in the Bush administration.

Tune in for an in-depth examination of the Bush administration post-9/11, from Gunatanamo to Abu Ghraib, with Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, Seymour Hersh.
