Episode 388: CIA Torture Whistleblower John Kiriakou Talks About the American Left

by | Mar 11, 2020

36 Minutes

Suitable for All Ages

Pete invited the man who blew the whistle on the CIA torture program, John Kiriakou, to come on the show and discuss the different factions on the America Left. They also discuss the Democratic primaries and who can beat trump in the coming November election, as well as how they see party politics going forward if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination

John Kiriakou is a former CIA operative and senior investigator for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. A target of the Obama administration’s war on whistleblowers, he remains the only US official to serve time behind bars after revelations of CIA “enhanced interrogation” practices, despite openly opposing the torture program. He maintains that his case was about exposing torture, not leaking information, adding, he “would do it all over again.”
