Or as a bungling Iraqi-war commandant and architect of “enhanced interrogation techniques” that led to the torture of prisoners of war at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay? We will soon have a better idea, for Vulture hears exclusively that Errol Morris has gotten the two-time Secretary of Defense to sit for a lengthy series of interviews, which Morris aims to release later this year as a documentary feature film.
