“Corrupt, toxic and sociopathic”: Glenn Greenwald unloads on torture, CIA and Washington’s rotten soul
Source: Salon. In an interview, Glenn Greenwald tells Salon how the torture report exposes true evil — and a nation drowning in hypocrisy. Glenn Greenwald, the Intercept’s Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and longtime critic of the war on terror told Salon, “Everything that we did, in terms of how we treated detainees, has [long] been viewed as morally vile and inexcusable and criminal.” Greenwald has little doubt, however, that Washington will turn torture into yet another partisan squabble. It’s the go-to move, he says, when America’s political and media elite decide they’d rather look the other way. “That’s just the ritual Washington engages in,” Greenwald said.
