On May 6th the American Strategy Program hosted an event with Philippe Sands, Professor of International Law at University College London and Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff for Colon Powell. Mr. Sands was in DC to testify to the House Judiciary Committee about the findings in his new book, Torture Team, which examines the legal implications of the Bush administration’s policy of torture. Col. Wilkerson was on hand for commentary on the subject. The event was moderated by Patrick Doherty, deputy director of the American Strategy program.

  4. Thanks for all the additional links, Paul. I edited the last one as I already posted it. (Sorry it took so long, however, I lost my Internet connection for hours today.)

  5. I was hoping that it would state “awaiting moderation” so you can know that it indeed posted. Hmm? I really don’t know what to say about comments that “disappear”. I don’t think I’ve lost anyone’s yet. Hard to say unless someone says something like you did.

  6. I know Lo. They usually say “awaiting moderation” but every so often they just vanish. I was just wondering if they vanished into your folder, or into the ether 😉

    Stress, hooding, noise, nudity, dogs

    It was the young officials at Guantánamo who dreamed up a list of new aggressive interrogation techniques, inspired by Jack Bauer from the TV series, 24. But it was the politicians and lawyers in Washington who set the ball rolling. Philippe Sands follows the torture trail right to the top.

    Tortured explanations

    Philippe Sands’ new book shows that those who drew up the US’s post-9/11 policy on interrogation were woefully inexperienced and badly advised

  8. I agree, Paul.

    New America Foundation has many different forums/discussions and I post a lot of their videos, although they don’t get many views, unfortunately. I keep on posting them because they are always well done.

  9. Excellent Lo. Sands is always worth watching and reading. He has a brilliant legal mind and ‘Lawless World’ is well worth a read.
