New Yorker Washington correspondent Jane Mayer will discuss her book, The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How The War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals, with me live this morning between 9:30 am and 11:00 am EST.
The book is already #19 on Amazon and is an important, serious chronicle of the torture policy advocacy of Vice President Cheney and his current chief of staff David Addington.
C-Span will also be covering this event today at the New America Foundation — though it will not be live.
Later today (I hope), I will be offering some of my own thoughts on this subject with some review of the failed efforts by John Bellinger, Matthew Waxman, Gordon England, and Philip Zelikow inside the Bush administration to prevent the embrace of torture policies.
