Today on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman and Juan González, I debate former CIA General Counsel John Rizzo on the question of declassifying a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report about the agency’s secret detention and interrogation programs. The debate covers torture, the role of secrecy, and the CIA’s new power to wage war using its own air force — even though it’s supposed to be an intelligence-gathering and analysis operation, not a second Pentagon.
Watch part one of the debate above. The rest is available, along with a transcript, at the website of Democracy Now!
