The publication of Glenn Carle's account of the CIA's investigation methods has been fraught with controversy. This report discusses the former agent's shocking claims with him and asks why he is speaking out.
"I was there. What we did counts as torture". Former CIA agent, Glenn Carle, argues that after 9/11 the face of US international relations changed forever. Instructed that "the absence of an answer is proof of guilt", Carle claims he was given carte blanche with suspected Al Qaeda detainees, and actively encouraged to "do whatever it takes" to get information. Reviled by colleagues and politicians for speaking out, he remains adamant that "someone has to tell the truth about what we have done".
