Presidential Transition and Accountability

Hosted by  • 

The Senate Armed Services Committee report says "abusive" interrogation techniques were not the work of a few low-level "bad apples" at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay. Top Administration officials, including Donald Rumsfeld, Air Force General Richard Myers and Condoleezza Rice, signed off on water-boarding and other practices some call torture.  All committee members from both parties agreed that was wrong. Vice President Cheney says he personally approved those practices, and calls them effective — and legal.
