Quite an Adventure

Mary Louise Kelly interviews Bob Grenier, ex-CIA secret agent and head of the CIA's Counterterrorism Center (a name that Winston Smith could appreciate). The story lead is that he had problems with the US approach to interrogations of detainees in the so-called "War on Terror." However all we hear from him regarding torture of detainees is that "the law is being strictly obeyed." Alright Kelly, ask him, "What law? The Geneva convention? The Universal Declaration on Human Rights? Other quaint international laws?" She doesn't say a thing. We do learn that Grenier is for "some form of due process" and thinks disappearing people isn't good. Oh, and we also learn that his year after 9/11 was "quiet an adventure." Well that's one way to describe it...
