Former CIA agent John Kiriakou said Monday that the Bush-era torture program "was approved by the president himself" and that the two years he spent behind bars for blowing the whistle on that program was worth it.
John Kiriakou: Hero!
The US is in dire need of many more people like John Kiriakou. More people like him to tell the truth, more people in the military who refuse to serve, and more people who refuse to enable the US to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity...

I admire John Kiriakou but saying, "torture has been banned in the United States. It is no longer a part of U.S. government policy." If he believes this, I fear he is sadly naive.
I honor this man's sacrifice in order to do the right thing. But.........." if torture has been banned in the United States. It is no longer a part of U.S. government policy", that will most likely change if the Republicans ever win another presidential election.
