(SOAPBOX #77) – Cindy has two wonderful guests: Starting with Debra Sweet, the woman behind World Can’t Wait. Debra came into town for the recent Berkeley Says “NO” to Torture event, October 10 – 16, and managed to drop by our studios. Cindyalso welcomes famous Independent Journalist Andy Worthington, author of The Guantánamo Files. Both are very knowledgeable and very distressed by our country’s continued embrace of torture. They deliver a LOT of good insights!
Andy Worthington is the author of The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison (published by Pluto Press, distributed by Macmillan in the US, and available from Amazon — click on the following for the US and the UK).
