A General Call For Truth

by

Speaking at a New York event, General Ricardo Sanchez became the first senior military officer who served in Iraq to call for a truth commission on detainee abuse and torture. The former commander of coalition forces in Iraq warned that without fully investigating the torture, "we are doomed to repeat it."

"During my time in Iraq there was
not one instance of actionable intelligence that came out of these
interrogation techniques...this
was an institutional failure, a personal failure on the part of
many."
