Quoted: Daniel Benjamin on the Senate’s Report of the CIA


Dartmouth Now takes note when faculty and other community members weigh in on issues of the day. Here is today’s “Quoted”:

“It is fairly remarkable that the lead responder here is the director of the CIA. But that may be a reflection of the administration’s original decision to cordon off the issue and not have a broader partisan blood bath over the Bush White House’s involvement in torture,” says Dartmouth’s Daniel Benjamin in a New York Times story about the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s interrogation methods.

Benjamin is the director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding.
