To read the four newly released memos on prisoner interrogation written by George W. Bush’s Justice Department is to take a journey into depravity.Howie P.S.: Major General Antonio Taguba whose report detailing abuses by U.S. armed forces in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq resulted in his forced resignation from the Bush administration, has called for an independent commission to investigate war crimes committed by senior members of that administration.
