Calls for an investigation into what happened regarding enhanced interrogation techniques with the Bush Administration have only grown louder in recent weeks, with Republicans calling for an investigation into what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew about such techniques as well.

Philip Gourevitch is the author of We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, a look at the 1994 Rwandan genocide. His new book, The Ballad of Abu Ghraib, along with Errol Morris, is now out in paperback.

We asked Gourevitch earlier this week if he believes there should be an investigation about what led, in part, to the abuses of detainees at Abu Ghraib.
