TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Chief of Staff to Colin Powell 2002-2005
When the secretary walked through my door into my office ...
about the time the photos of Abu Ghraib were getting ready to come out, ...
and we had rumor that they were coming out, ...
he said to me, "I need to know what happened and why."
And so then I began to build both an open source and inside the government, classified and unclassified, document file.
And I began to see legal arguments as to why the President could pretty much do anything he wanted to in the name of Security.
And the Secretary of Defense, and others beneath him, were actually looking for the twin pressures that they put on people.
