The CIA Interrogator – Interview with Glenn Carle (ZMAN Magazine)

The 9/11 attacks changed America forever. No longer would it be enough to wait for terror to come to the US. It was time to take the battle to the terrorists themselves.

Glenn on PBS NewsHour – Al-Qaida ‘On the Run,’

JIM LEHRER: The CIA has Osama bin Laden and other al-Qaida leaders on the run. That’s according to CIA Director Leon Panetta. He told The Washington Post this morning: “It’s pretty clear, from all the intelligence we are getting that — all the intelligence we are getting they are having a very difficult time putting together any kind of command and control, that they are scrambling.”

And Panetta attributed the success, in part, to improved relations with Pakistan, saying, “We do a lot more operations together.”
