Some cheerful breakfast reading

Seymour Hersh has a new article, "The Gray Zone," out in the New Yorker discussing the prisoner abuse in Iraq. Parts of this article read like a Tom Clancy novel, including things like clandestine intelligence officers interrogating people in secret CIA hideouts across the globe. The sad thing is that unlike a Tom Clancy novel, this is real, and very, very wrong.

Hersh's first and second New Yorker articles, "Torture at Abu Ghraib" and "Chain of Command," are also well worth reading.
