Scott Horton of Antiwar.com interviewed me on Thursday on the latest developments on the torture scandal. As always, Scott’s optimism is downright contagious.

We did the interview just before the Padilla jury verdict was announced. I reckon the interview would have been more caustic…
The Christian Science Monitor did a great series of articles last week on the Padilla case, detailing how the feds effectively Zombified Padilla via years of severe abuse. Jane Mayer nailed the story as well in the New Yorker. But most of the media ignored the barbaric means the government used to crush the defendant before the trial.
I will be curious to see the analyses of how the Padilla trial went down, and how much evidence of torture the jurors actually saw.
