Gary Berntsen former CIA career officer, who served as CIA station chief on 3 separate occasions and Senior National Security Advisor for Concerned Veterans for America talked about how stunning it is that the CIA interrogation report is being released. Gary explained that the information gathered from the 3 terrorists who were water boarded stopped imminent massive catastrophic attacks against us. Gary also explained that we definitely got information that lead to killing and dismantling Al Qaeda and thwarting attacks they had planned.
Gary also said that unfortunately the message that this plan to release the info is showing the CIA that unless you work in the strictest of guidelines you will be prosecuted.
Switching over to Iraq, Gary said that he wouldn't be surprised by any failure by the Iraqi army. He also feels more optimistic about Afghanistan and believes that they have strong leaders and infrastructure to keep the country out of falling to the arms of the Taliban and terrorists.
