info on Podcast #10

In this wide ranging conversation with British journalist Andy Worthington, author of “The Guantanamo Files”, Peter B. inquires about the origins of US detention and torture policies, confirms that the vast majority of prisoners were innocent of any terrorism crimes, and talks about his “crazy Mofo” theory that drove Cheney (further) to the dark side. [Warning: crude language intentionally used.] Worthington debunks the claims of Gitmo prisoners who were released and, according to the Pentagon, “returned to the battlefield”.  And he details the treatment of al-Libi, who was tortured into false claims of a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda and al-Libi’s recent death by “suicide” in a Lybian prison. For the 4th of July, Peter plays a sung version of the Declaration of Independence, and tips you off to a YouTube video with a new Declaration that cites current crimes against our constitution.
