Matthew Alexander – the senior military interrogator in Iraq – interviewed by Robert Greenwald’s Brave New Studios.
The VIDEO segment that follows is 3 minutes, 37-seconds long. Alexander completely destroys Dick Cheney’s arguments for torture!
I’ve extracted the following from an email I received from Robert Greenwald (along with thousands of other recipients) that I received – Tue, 26 May 2009 10:31 am.
Matthew Alexander was the senior military interrogator for the task force that tracked down Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq and, at the time, a higher priority target than Osama bin Laden. Mr. Alexander has personally conducted hundreds of interrogations and supervised over a thousand of them.
“Torture does not save lives. Torture costs us lives,” Mr. Alexander said in an exclusive interview at Brave New Studios. “And the reason why is that our enemies use it, number one, as a recruiting tool…These same foreign fighters who came to Iraq to fight because of torture and abuse….literally cost us hundreds if not thousands of American lives.”
