Torture and truth : America, Abu Ghraib, and the war on terror by Mark Danner ( Book )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the spring of 2004, graphic photographs of Iraqi prisoners being tortured by American soldiers in Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison flashed around the world, provoking outraged debate." "The images are shocking, but they do not tell the whole story. The abuses at Abu Ghraib were not isolated incidents but the result of a chain of deliberate decisions and failures of command. To understand how "Hooded Man" and "Leashed Man" could have happened, Mark Danner turns to the documents that are collected for the first time in this book." "These documents include secret government memos, some never before published, that portray a fierce argument within the Bush administration over whether al-Qaeda and Taliban prisoners were protected by the Geneva Conventions and how far the US could go in interrogating them. There are also official reports on abuses at Abu Ghraib by the International Committee of the Red Cross, by US Army investigators, and by an independent panel chaired by former defense secretary James R. Schlesinger. In sifting this evidence, Danner traces the path by which harsh methods of interrogation approved for suspected terrorists in Afghanistan and Guantanamo "migrated" to Iraq as resistance to the US occupation grew and US casualties mounted."--Jacket
The massacre at El Mozote : a parable of the Cold War by Mark Danner ( Book )
8 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thorough account of Dec. 1981 massacre of villagers by Salvadoran armed forces includes details of subsequent cover-up. Guerrillas acknowledged many civilian victims were rebel supporters, but El Mozote was Protestant stronghold unreceptive even to liberation theology. Good overview of military, death squad, and guerrilla violence in early 1980s"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
The secret way to war : the Downing Street Memo and the Iraq War's buried history by Mark Danner ( Book )
12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the Secret Way to War, Mark Danner examines in detail the record of decision-making revealed by the so-called Downing Street documents - a set of memoranda and reports, included here in full - that offer an inside view of members of Tony Blair's government and their American counterparts in Washington, as they struggle to come up with legal and political rationales for invading Iraq. These documents prove, writes Danner, that President Bush had decided on war eight months before invading, and only later choose, under British urging, to use the supposed threat from Saddam's weapons of mass destruction to justify it. The Secret Way to War describes how the documents, with "almost shocking clarity," tell of that deception - and how the US press and public, in large part, are managing not to listen."--Jacket

In this expansion of an article that first appeared in 'The New York Review of Books', a world-class journalist investigates the chaotic 2000 presidential election and retraces the ballot-by-ballot Florida recount. Interviews with key organizers from the Bush and Gore camps reveal the near-hysterical partisan bickering and the effects of the Supreme Court's ruling to halt the recount. The essential question 'Who actually got the most votes?' is explored with attention to how political organizations, media coverage, and party divisions heightened the tension during the most disputed election in United States history
