Seymour Hersh reports in The New Yorker magazine that the Bush Administration decided, on its own, after 9/11 that military intelligence operations should and could be conducted on presidential authority alone, with no notification to Congress. The revelation is in an article titled, “The General’s Report” on how Gen. Antonio Taguba was forced out of service after his report on Abu Ghraib.
