Silence On "The Dark Side"

The devastating narrative pieced together in Jane Mayer's must-read book, The Dark Side, has met with no response from the White House, credibly accused of war crimes. The conservative media have also shut out discussion of Mayer's book. Some things are simply indefensible in public, I guess, even for the usual suspects. Jane's take:

    There has been just plain radio silence. Though, I can say, I’ve actually heard from some of the sources. This book is not just based on talking to critics of the administration. It’s talking to lots of people on the inside: inside the White House, inside the CIA and the FBI and the military. And it’s been really gratifying. I’ve actually gotten some really wonderful phone calls from people who’ve said, “You know, you got it. Thank goodness someone told the story.” So that actually has really made me feel good.

Read the book. Your children will ask what you did to stop these people.
