Chris Anders, Senior Legislative Counsel At The ACLU Will Join C&L At 1PM/4PM Live Chat On The Torture Memos

Just a heads up, Chris Anders, Senior Legislative Counsel for the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office will be joining us at 1PM/4PM today to discuss what was revealed in the CIA torture memos, the SASC report and what are the next steps to take now that we have these important memos---accountability efforts on the Hill, both for a select committee and an independent prosecutor.

Carl Levin said about the new report:

In a statement, SASC chairman Senator Carl Levin said the report "represents a condemnation of both the Bush Administration's interrogation policies and of senior Administration officials who attempted to shift the blame for abuse - such as that seen at Abu Ghraib, GuantÁnamo Bay and Afghanistan - to low-ranking soldiers.
