McChrystal On Torture

Here’s the NewsHour interview link. The relevant section starts around the 8:20 mark. He’s against it. But he isn’t asked about his own complicity with it, as credibly alleged here. My previous takes here and here. McChrystal was never asked about his alleged complicity in some of the most barbaric torture methods in Iraq by the Senate. To the best of my recollection, no reporter or interviewer on his book tour has even brought it up so far. That’s the American way, isn’t it? Those who reveal (false) details of torture are prosecuted; those who authorized and oversaw the brutal torture are rewarded with promotions and book tours in which the subject isn’t broached.
