Antiwar Radio: Katherine Gallagher

Katherine Gallagher, Senior Staff Attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, discusses the disappointing end to John Durham’s multi-year investigation into CIA torture tape destruction (coinciding exactly with the expiring statute of limitations), why half-assed limited investigations may not be enough to placate European judges from prosecuting US government officials under universal jurisdiction, low expectations for Durham’s remaining preliminary investigation into “unauthorized” torture practices, the Justice Department’s shilling for unlimited executive power without judicial oversight, Attorney General Eric Holder’s inaction over Bush’s “damn right” boast of waterboarding approval despite Holder’s clear statement that waterboarding amounts to torture and the mounting evidence that the US is no longer governed by the rule of law.
