FLASHBACK: Amanpour Versus Thiessen On Torture (VIDEO)

Going forward, you will be able to wake up on Sunday morning and watch a political talk show that will be hosted by a journalist who is willing to refer to torture by the word "torture." This is a great good thing.


Point of interest: At the top of the segment, Thiessen maintains that Abu Zubaydah thanked his torturers. Zubyadah's attorney, Brent Mickum, told the Huffington Post, "No. That's categorically untrue. Abu Zubaydah has never apologized to or thanked his interrogators. Quite the opposite, actually."
