“There’s a shadow over our nation that needs lifting.”
–Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois
This quotation concludes an article by Jane Mayer, “A Deadly Interrogation,” in The New Yorker, November 14, 2005. The article details the failure of the CIA and the Department of Justice to investigate deaths of prisoners in American custody.
The article is readily accessible in the New Yorker archive where there is a folder called Iraq which contains all the magazine’s coverage since the war began.
