Waterboarding Special Airing Now on Current TV
Original post (10/30)
Maybe someone will tell Attorney General nominee Michael Mukasey to watch Current TV tomorrow night at 10:00 pm ET.
On Wednesday, October 31st at 10pm ET/PT, Current TV gives viewers a real look at what Waterboarding entails when two ex-Survival, Escape, Resistance and Evasion (SERE) instructors administer a controversial interrogation technique to Current Vanguard Journalist Kaj Larsen.
SERE is a U.S. military program that provides military personnel, Department of Defense civilians and contractors with training in the Code of Conduct, survival skills, evading capture, recovery and dealing with captivity.
I didn't think I got Current TV, but sure enough, it's channel 107 on Comcast and you can also get it on Dish and other services.
Ken at Progress Now has a good post on the Mukasey-torture issue, and I thank him for reminding me about what I wrote in 2004 about the role of the Attorney General in the context of Alberto Gonzales and John Ashcroft.
Many people think the role of Attorney General is simply to be the nation's "top cop," the chief criminal law enforcer. But it is much more. The role of the Attorney General is to serve as America's lawyer, in civil as well as criminal matters. He is not the President's lawyer. He is our lawyer.
