Deploying the Right, Penetrating the Left, How the "Discrediting Committee" Works: The Real Scandal of the Abu Ghraib Picture

One of the most bizarre media tricks over the last weeks was the little psychological warfare drama organized around the issue of torture in Abu Ghraib, The New York Times published an interview with one of the many prisoners tortured in Abu Ghraib, Ali Shalal Qaissi, now living in Jordan. Qaissi is the leader of an association of the former prisoners of Abu Ghraib and he is trying to have at least a little part of the truth about the torture of prisoners in Iraq come out.
