James Risen On The Corruptive Results Of Our Endless War On Terror

jamesrisen-payanyprice.jpg

    Pulitzer Prize winning reporter James Risen's new book is Pay Any Price: Greed, Power, and Endless War. For his efforts, especially in his previous best-selling book, State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration, he has become a target of both the Bush and Obama administrations and still faces the threat of jail time for his refusal to reveal how he found out so much information about an important story of CIA bungling.

In his new book he weaves several stories into the broadest canvas yet - a picture of how, he says, our endless war on terror has so corrupted us, so vastly warped the use of state power that America is waging wars on decency and truth.

Originally aired in October 2014.
