CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou Calls on Journalists to Tell ‘Full Story’ of US Torture

John Casey, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism

CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who exposed the treatment of al Qaeda suspects held in secret prisons, told the Bureau today it was now down to journalists to “tell the full story” about the intelligence agency’s torture programme because politicians did not have the will.

In a video interview on the last day of his house arrest recorded for the Bureau by film-maker Tarquin Ramsay, the former CIA counter-terrorism analyst called on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence to release more details from its 6,000-page report on CIA torture completed last December.

" Because politicians did not have the will". Lets cut to the chase, the real reason is: Because politicians are soooooo corrupt!

It is also very important to note that the US military engaged in widespread horrific torture. IT WAS NOT JUST THE CIA. That too cries out for investigation. Veterans For Peace.

The real sad part is how many think they are doing the right thing by voting for Dem, Hillary. Yet another war criminal that millions of Americans support because, she is the war criminal they prefer.

"We have to support the lesser of 2 evils, you are throwing away your vote if you vote independent." - says the Average American Dem voter.

This kind of stupid is the problem, or at least part of it.

It's not simply stupid, it's design.

It is SIMPLE to design voting systems that do not require voters to compromise, vote "lesser evil," or "throw away" their vote. Instant Runoff Voting is a vast improvement over the plurality voting that is now most widely used, but there are better systems than IRV, like Score Voting and its simplest form, Approval Voting.
