what looks like a good panel coming up on April 29, 6:30-8pm:

PHILIP GOUREVITCH & ERROL MORRIS: Standard Operating Procedure
Author Philip Gourevitch and filmmaker Errol Morris, two of our keenest moral and political observers, have produced the first full reckoning of what actually happened at Abu Ghraib prison, based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the Americans involved. @Celeste Bartos Forum, NYPL on 42 st and 5th ave.
Errol Morris also has a blog on the NY Times site where he writes about photography and political issues. I recommend it.
