NPR's Linda Wertheimer speaks with Christopher Cerf, who has written songs for Sesame Street for over 30 years, and is most recently the co-editor of the Iraq War Reader, about a new tactic used by the United States military on Iraqi prisoners of war. U.S. Psy Ops is playing heavy metal music and songs from the children's programs Sesame Street and Barney for extended periods in order to persuade the prisoners to reveal secret information.
