5/9/18 Karen Greenberg on the history of the U.S. torture program and Gina Haspel’s involvement

by | May 9, 2018 | Interviews

Fordham University law professor Karen Greenberg joins Scott to discuss the history of the United States torture program. Greenberg makes the case that Haspel was just one cog in the wheel of the U.S. torture program and that a whole torture network was held completely unaccountable. She describes the earliest days of the U.S. torture program in the aftermath of 9/11 and how it exploded into the spotlight in the wake of the Abu Ghraib scandal. Read her latest article, “The hearings for Trump’s CIA pick should prompt a reckoning with torture.”

Karen Greenberg is the director of the Center on National Security at Fordham University. She is the author of The Least Worst Place: Guantanamo’s First 100 Days and Rogue Justice:The Making of the Security State. Follow her on Twitter @KarenGreenberg3.
