Taxi to the Dark Side is going to run tonight on HBO, 9 pm EST.
If you haven’t seen it, the Oscar winning documentary by Alex Gibney is a must see.

Here are a few short clips of interviews I did with some of those featured in the film. The first (above) is with SPC Damien Corsetti about his experiences at Bagram Prison and FBI special agent and interrogator Jack Cloonan.
Others follow:

Steve Clemons interviews Alex Gibney
Steve Clemons interviews former State Department Chief of Staff and long term aide to Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson on military code of conduct

    This is quite possibly so. And if so, tragically.

    Maybe trot Wes Clark out there and give him another chance?

    Sadly, tragically, you may be right. But there’s still opportunity to revisit McCain’s unfortunate support for institutional torture in America’s name. If Obama’s not able to do it (politically), some surrogate might. I hope they do. It’s important.

    One candidate for President from a major party voted for the interrogation techniques discussed in this movie. The other did not.
    All else equal (if that’s really possible), if you support these interrogation techniques, you should vote for Senator McCain. If you, like I, do not, you should vote for Senator Obama.
