Lawsuit: A machine which you go into as a pig and come out of as a sausage.
In my book, I detail the critical information we obtained from al Qaeda terrorists after they became compliant following a short period of enhanced interrogation. I have no doubt that that interrogation was legal, necessary and saved lives.
I’ve become so earthy. And I never was earthy. I’m doing all kinds of different roles which are not at all like the intellectual and the legal mind of Ben Stone.
Once the attacks occur, as we learned on Sept. 11, it is too late. It makes little sense to deprive ourselves of an important, and legal, means to detect and prevent terrorist attacks while we are still in the middle of a fight to the death with al Qaeda.
