RT exclusive: John Pilger talks CIA torture and media complicity
RT’s Harry Fear spoke to the iconic filmmaker John Pilger about the damning revelations of the Senate’s CIA torture inquiry.

Pilger said the report will not fulfill its purpose if no one is held culpable for the actions of torturous CIA officials.

“We have crimes laid out in for us,” he says, “but where are the prosecutions? That’s all that matters now, where are the prosecutions?”

Pilger says knowledge of the torture methods was widespread, but that people were never held responsible for the “disgusting things they’ve done.”

He further criticized the media for not being bold enough in holding officials to account.

“I can almost write the editorials in the Guardian and others, about what a wonderfully principled and open society the US is. They’ve tortured these people for years, but they’ve got a wonderful Senate inquiry that has revealed it all to us.”
