I hosted a screening the other night of Alex Gibney’s powerful chronicle of America’s torture policy and activities, Taxi to the Dark Side.
Afterward, I asked some of those who appeared in the film some questions. In this clip, which is not high quality film production and dark, but still important to see, I ask former military interrogator Damien Corsetti about what he saw and participated in at Abu Ghraib and Bagram detention centers. I then asked former FBI Special Agent and interrogator Jack Cloonan why after seeing the interrogation scene in Iraq and Afghanistan the FBI pulled out. His response which reflects on ‘future blowback’ from the Abu Ghraib abuses and photos is important and chilling.
