Join Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bill Dedman to welcome former NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) special agent and Homeland Security executive Mark Fallon discusses Unjustifiable Means: The Inside Story of How the CIA, Pentagon, and US Government Conspired to Torture. Hear about the decision to implement “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques,” and the backchannels and deception employed to legalize these methods and hide them from the public’s view.

"Mark Fallon is the Serpico in the war on terror, trying to win the war by doing it the right way. Unjustifiable Means provides an inside look at counterterrorism operations and the sacrifices that good people make to win that war. Fallon shows how torture has made us less safe and that it may make people talk, but it doesn't make them tell the truth." from Bill Dedman, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter and Senior Writer, Newsday
