04/27/11 – Gareth Porter – The Scott Horton Show

by | Apr 27, 2011 | Interviews

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses his article “Why US and NATO Fed Detainees to Afghan Torture System;” ambiguous statements from Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on the July Afghanistan drawdown; perpetuating failure with the “long war” doctrine; how Gen. David Petraeus’s new role as CIA chief puts a damper on civilian oversight of military operations; the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden (sorry for the extreme delay in posting interviews the past couple weeks); and how the Afghan National Directorate of Security – given prisoners by US and NATO forces for “interrogation” – released bribe-paying high-ranking Taliban officials.
