Philippe Sands was interviewed by the Guardian about his new book Torture Team:Rumsfeld's Memo and the Betrayal of American Values which details how counter-productive American interrogation abuses resulted from top-down policy decisions. I've nearly finished the book and can say that Sands has done an excellent job of placing responsibility for interrogation abuses in the proper place.
Sands' appearance on Bill Moyers Journal is also highly informative.
