Ep 23: Against George W. Bush’s CIA Torture Program: Roundtable

Summary – Against George W. Bush’s CIA Torture Program: Roundtable

On the first ever Protestant Libertarian Podcast roundtable, my three guests are Reverend Doctor Jennifer Copeland, who is the director of the North Carolina Council of Churches, Doctor Christina Cowger, who is the facilitator of North Carolina Stop Torture Now, an organization that has been fighting against CIA torture programs that use North Carolina-based planes, and Raymond McGovern, an army veteran and a CIA analyst for decades, who has a heroic record of opposing the excesses of the US war on terror and writes for antiwar.com. We discuss Dr. Copeland’s recent piece ‘Dishonoring the Boy Scouts of America’, in which she critiques the George W. Bush administration’s shameful record on torture. We discuss the torture programs, the CIA, rendition using North Carolina tax-funded planes, how we are programmed to legitimize the bad foreign policy decisions of the US government, why this is a bi-partisan problem, and why Christians need to take this issue extremely seriously. This is not one to miss!
