08/14/12 – Alfred McCoy – The Scott Horton Show

by | Aug 14, 2012 | Interviews | 3 comments

History professor Alfred McCoy discusses how the Bush and Obama administrations have created a torture regime with “impunity at home, rendition abroad;” Bush’s policy change after the Iraq Abu Ghraib embarrassment, when Iraqis and Afghans took over torture duty and American soldiers kept their mouths shut about it; the pathology of impunity that’s endemic among high government officials; the torture debate between FBI agent Ali Soufan and Dick Cheney/CIA; and how universal jurisdiction could reign in US lawlessness.
