John Leguizamo Performs "The General's Report"

In this clip, popular actor and comedian John Leguizamo portrays General Antonio Taguba, author of the U.S. Army report on prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib, from journalist Seymour Hersh's adaptation of "The General's Report". This excerpt from Culture Project's special discussion on the "War on Terror", "Blueprint for Accountability: Working the Dark Side", illustrates how Taguba's investigation into abuses at Abu Ghraib was censored by the U.S. government. "I've been in the Army 22 years and this was the first time that I felt like I was in the Mafia," Taguba/Leguizamo says. The clip is introduced by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
