There is a lot of developing news out there today so I will make this brief.
We are closely monitoring the release by the U.S. Justice Department of memos detailing harsh interrogation methods of terrorism suspects during the Bush administration.
These are suspects questionned between 2002 and as late as 2005 in overseas prison facilities. The Obama team is asking Americans and the world to move on, issuing promises no CIA operatives will be prosecuted.
But the question for most of the world is hardly a legal one, but a question of what moral standards American intelligence sets for itself. We'll explore all the angles.
We'll also take you live to Spain where prosecutors asked a judge to drop a case against former Bush Administration officials for alleged torture at Guantanamo Bay. But a judge moved minutes ago to keep the case alive. We're live with the latest.
That and the rest of the day's important news and an announcement about I-Desk at the end of the program. Our show has been so successful, we're planning great new things for it, so tune in for details!
