De-Manufacturing Consent- “Business as Usual: The CIA-Senate Committee Shell Game & Mexico’s New Order”

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Bill Conroy

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by investigative journalist for Narco News, Mr. Bill Conroy. We discuss the latest CIA scandal involving the agency's interference with a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into the use of "harsh interrogation tactics" (i.e. torture) during the Bush administration. Conroy explains how this case mirrors the case of former DEA agent Richard Horn, including the recurrence of key players in Sen. Dianne Feinstein and CIA lawyer Robert Eatinger.

Also on the program, we discuss the latest on the drug war front in Mexico, President Enrique Peña Nieto's "purge" of the old order, and how the privatization of Pemex (Mexico's State-Owned Oil and Gas Company) and search for foreign investment may account for the latest moves on the chessboard.
