221. Michael Scheuer of the CIA under Clinton talks about his part in doing rendition on AJ's FaultLines
Edited on Fri May-08-09 10:49 AM by cascadiance
Al Jazeera's Fault Lines started its first show on Free Speech TV a week ago or so, and the first show really talks about the torture and rendition programs. Of note at around 6:30 in this show, Avi Lewis, Naomi Klein's husband, interviews Michael Scheuer, who is the one who designed the rendition program under Clinton.

Scheuer:
"America is far safer because of the rendition program, both under Mr. Clinton and under Mr. Bush. That's always very amusing, really that when the rendition program is discussed in the media it always begins on the day Bush was inaugurated. And of course the more brutal part of the rendition program was conducted under Mr. Clinton."

Lewis:
"Under you."

Scheuer:
"Under me. Frankly at this point I'd rather kill them when we find them, than to take them anywhere."

So, I think there are skeletons in the Dem's closet too, that is why there's been a bipartisan effort to avoid transparency here.
