Emily Whitfield on Torture Memos, John Prados on Intelligence Commission
This week on CounterSpin: New memos about the Bush administration's torture and interrogation policies in Iraq have come to light. There's big news here, but you wouldn't know it by the media's indifference to the story. What is actually in these new torture documents? And why aren't journalists picking up on the story? We'll ask Emily Whitfield of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Also this week: The presidential commission assigned to look into intelligence failures in Iraq and elsewhere, delivered a report placing nearly all the blame for bad information about Iraq's weapons on the CIA and the intelligence community-and none on senior Bush administration officials. We'll talk to John Prados of the National Security Archives about the commission and its report.
