Andrew Sullivan goes over the recently released Schmidt Report on interrogation practices at Guantanamo and finds that there is no longer any doubt that what we saw in the pictures at Abu Ghraib was approved by the White House. The most important thing to remember here is that this isn’t an article from Seymour Hersh talking to secret sources at the Pentagon, it’s a conservative commentator (albeit one who has been admirably tough on the torture issue) reading an official report which purportedly exonerates the military officers involved. You can be certain that the truth is even worse than what’s described in the report.
