Enhanced Imagination

In the aptly headlined, “Timeout for Imagination,” Friedman explains what he thinks was behind Abu Ghraib: “I believe the main reason the Abu Ghraib prison scandal happened was because U.S. forces in Iraq were facing an uprising and had no intelligence.”

Could be, or maybe Abu Ghraib had something to do with the Bush administration’s active, aggressive embrace of “enhanced interrogation” as national policy.
