John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer and author of Doing Time Like A Spy: How the CIA Taught Me to Survive and Thrive in Prison, discusses why he refused to participate in the CIA’s so-called enhanced interrogation program after 9/11, and why he – as a whistleblower – was the only CIA officer to be jailed over it. Kiriakou also discusses his 30 month sentence and how he survived the brutality of the American prison system.
