The administration is kidding itself when it thinks it can get away with torture. And why? No less an authority than the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture says so. It won't happen tomorrow, but I do believe that there's a reasonably good chance administration officials implicated in our practice of torture will ultimately face the bar of justice. To better understand what's at stake I talked with Professor Manfred Nowak, the aforementioned UN Special Rapporteur, who doesn't pull any punches.
Why, I wonder, by the way, haven't any mainstream journalists (either print or broadcast) interviewed him? He's got a lot to say that's newsworthy on this critically important subject.
This is one of the best shows I've put together, both substantively and from a technical point of view. I very much hope you find time to listen and that it proves useful.
As always, please redistribute the link if you feel it's appropriate.
Thanks for listening!
