September 19, 2017 (Amb. Murray on libel, etc. – from beginning to minute 10:20; Kiriakou, Murray, Ray “roundtable” – from minute 12:20 to 47:00)
Amb. Murray comments on how the “1 percent” in Britain is cynically using Britain’s draconian libel law to bring him to complete bankruptcy – and silence. Kiriakou talks about how his telling the truth about CIA torture landed him in prison for 23 months and what he encountered there. Other subjects discussed include North Korea and the Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence, whose honoree this year (SAAII’s 16th) is independent investigative journalist Seymour Hersh. What lies behind the escalating threats from Washington against WikiLeaks and Julian Assange (SAAII laureate in 2010) is also discussed toward the end.
