One of the most influential and acclaimed investigative reporters of the past 50 years, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh commands respect for his ongoing and incisive examinations of the abuse of power in the name of national security. His landmark reports include groundbreaking coverage of the Abu Ghraib prison abuse in Iraq, the My Lai massacre in Vietnam, the CIA's bombing of Cambodia, and Henry Kissinger's wiretapping of his own staff. Most recently, Hersh's articles in The New Yorker have probed the underside of the Iraq war and the intelligence and military quagmire caused by the conflict.
