Summary This investigative series on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal reveals that the Bush administration knew about the interrogation methods being used. Breaking all rules of the Geneva Convention, the Bush administration had declared as soon as the war on Iraq started that the conventions were not going to be adhered to. Backed by a paper trail of documents from the White House, these journalists revealed that the military personnel higher in the ranks, and not just the MP's were involved.
