J. Phillip London talked about the book he co-wrote, Our Good Name: A Company’s Fight to Defend Its Honor and Get the Truth Told About Abu Ghraib (Regnery Publishing, May 27, 2008). Mr. London, former president and CEO and current chairman of the board of CACI International, talked about the accusations of wrongdoing made against his company in relation to the Abu Ghraib scandal. Mr. London argued that the initial investigations by the military and reports in the media wrongfully implicated his employees in the torture and abuse committed by others at the Iraqi prison. Topics included the actions of the media and the crisis management techniques utilized by the company. The guest interviewer was Rowan Scarborough, Washington Times national security correspondent.
Rowan Scarborough is a Navy veteran who covered the Pentagon for the Washington Times for nearly two decades before moving to the Washington Examiner to cover national security. He is the author of Rumsfeld’s War: The Untold Story of America’s Anti-Terrorist Commander and Sabotage: America’s Enemies Within the CIA. close
