John Kiriakou, a former CIA officer and whistleblower, was one of the first government officials to reveal the U.S. torture of detainees and prisoners.
Kiriakou is an associate fellow with the Institute for Policy Studies and a contributor for the Huffington Post. He appears in the 2014 documentary "Silenced," a film about three National Security Agency whistleblowers who fight to reveal dark and illegal secrets regarding the United States' pseudo "War on Terror."
In this broadcast, we talk about John's latest book, "Doing Time Like a Spy: How the CIA Taught Me to Survive and Thrive in Prison." In it, he details his experiences in prison, his personal insights into the criminal injustice system and how his training in the CIA was crucial while he was doing time.
Kiriakou brings a wealth of experience and passion to the program and we are quite sure you will be greatly impacted by what he has to share.
