In a broadcast exclusive interview, Democracy Now! interviews John Kiriakou, a retired CIA agent who blew the whistle on torture and is the only official to be jailed for any reason relating to the torture program under President Bush.

He responds to details of the partially released Senate Committee Report on the CIA's use of torture, such as the use of forced rectal feeding, by calling for the prosecution of those involved. “Those were not approved interrogation techniques. Why aren’t those officers being prosecuted?”
