THE DARK SIDE The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals

by | Read by Richard McGonagle

Contemporary Culture • 16.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Journalist Mayer gives an account of the Bush administration's legal prosecution of the "War on Terror." Her impassioned account lays much of the blame for condoning torture and other abuses at the feet of Vice President Cheney and others in his circle. Mayer, who seems to see the law enforcement paradigm as the best way to deal with terrorism, views the treatment of detainees by the Bush administration as one of this country's blackest moments. Richard McGonagle performs this unabridged production superbly. His deep, rich voice is a perfect match of voice and text. He reads as one making an oral argument before the bench of public opinion—passionate about the matter he is presenting, but restrained, so as to make each point hit home.
