John Bradshaw Discusses CIA Torture Report on Background Briefing with Ian Masters
The Polarized Reaction to the Torture Report
December 9, 2014 | Background Briefing with Ian Masters
We begin with the release of post-9/11 torture and rendition report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence which has been held up for years and is heavily redacted. John Bradshaw, the Executive Director of the National Security Network joins us to discuss the partisan political divide in response to the report as Republicans, with the exception of Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain, defend torture and those that perpetrated it, while Democrats and the White House defend the report and the need to make it public. We will also examine why the author of the legal justification for the Bush Administration’s use of torture, John Yoo, was not held to account.
