We speak with Sy Hersh about his investigation, nearly 15 years later.
JUAN GONZÁLEZ: I wanted to ask you about, of course, another of your many exposés that received international attention: Abu Ghraib. Could you talk about how you got onto Abu Ghraib and the impact that that story had, not only in the United States, but across the Muslim world?
SEYMOUR HERSH: There was nothing that I wrote that wasn't known and been reported by Human Rights Watch—a wonderful guy named John Sifton was just brilliant—Amnesty International, were writing—doing reports, talking about torture. It's the same thing that I was reading in the '60s about Vietnam, that—by church groups who were writing books about it, that didn't make the media. And they were doing torture.
