Civil liberties gone, Gitmo ‘dryboarding,’ opium war in Afghanistan
On this episode of ‘Breaking the Set,’ Abby talks about yet another ‘apparent suicide’ in Guantanamo prison, ‘dryboarding,’ and how the only way to ever leave the jail is in a body bag. Abby interviews former CIA Officer Ray McGovern about CIA intelligence failures leading up to 9/11, the presidential daily briefings, and the PNAC’s neocon war strategy. Abby also talks to Afghan journalist and ‘Opium Wars’ author Fariba Nawa about the country’s opium trade, opium brides and the heroin black market. Eleven years after 9/11, Abby breaks down the systematic erosion of civil liberties through legislation passed in post-9/11 America.
