Host: The Heritage Foundation. As chief speechwriter for President Bush, Marc Thiessen was given unprecedented access to some of the most sensitive intelligence on al Qaeda terrorists. In Courting Disaster, he argues that the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” were not only effective, but lawful and morally just. By eliminating these proven tactics and releasing sensitive documents detailing our interrogation methods of high-value terrorists, Thiessen further posits that the Obama Administration has damaged America’s national security, unleashed a flood of recrimination against the intelligence officers who have protected us for the past nine years, and opened up the door for future attacks.
