05/16/11 – Jason Leopold – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 16, 2011 | Interviews

Investigative reporter Jason Leopold discusses his article “Filling in the Gaping Holes in WikiLeaks’ Guantanamo Detainee Files;” how the FBI emails (available here) on Guantanamo prisoner detention conditions indicate torture was the primary means of extracting “evidence;” the torture of Mohammed al-Qahtani, choreographed in the White House by top Bush administration officials; Bush speech writer Marc Thiessen’s admission that KSM was tortured for compliance, not actionable intelligence (which is the whole torture program writ large); and why evidence beyond WikiLeaks documents – especially photos and videos – is needed to get the public’s attention.
