‘Big Boy Pants’



Text  



The former head of the CIA’s clandestine service, Jose Rodriguez, made a robust and persuasive defense of the enhanced-interrogation program on 60 Minutes last night. On top of everything else, he was a colorful interview. He said this of the CIA getting the sign-off from the rest of the government for the program: “We needed to get everybody in government to put their big boy pants on and provide the authorities we needed.” He is out with a new book called, Hard Measures. You can read the interview transcript here.
