DOJ whistleblower discusses torture report with Larry King


Jesselyn Radack, a former Department of Justice ethics advisor and whistleblower, appeared on Politicking With Larry King to discuss the Senate report on CIA interrogations. As the National Security and Human Rights Director for the Government Accountability Project, she now represents other whistleblowers, including John Kiriakou, who publicly attributed the CIA’s interrogation techniques to White House policy.

“I think we need this kind of reckoning with torture,” she said, “so that we don’t slip into this kind of behavior again.”

Radack described her whistleblowing experience in the book, Traitor: The Whistleblower and the “American Taliban,” about agency misconduct in the case of terrorism suspect John Walker Lindh.
