Description

http://democracynow.org - When questioned by Democracy Now! host and executive producer Amy Goodman, former CIA Director Peter Goss said the bipartisan Senate Committee Report on the CIA’s Use of Torture was “not the full truth” and criticized Sen. John McCain for defending it. Both Goodman and Goss spoke Tuesday during a conference at Hofstra University that assessed the George W. Bush presidency. As Newsday reports: “Goss criticized the committee’s report as a ‘partisan political study’ because it was called for by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who serves as vice chairwoman of the committee. Goodman countered that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), once a prisoner of war in Vietnam, had defended the report, saying the use of torture ‘damaged our security interests, as well as our reputation as a force for good in the world.’" Former national intelligence director and U.S. ambassador to Iraq, John Negroponte, also spoke at the event, and later said, "Boy, I need a stiff drink after that one."
