Activists call out past Washington Post role in concealing CIA torture

On the 10th of December, the Washington Post ran a front-page story about the Congressional CIA torture report. Unfortunately, this sort of journalism is the exception, not the rule there. Also on Dec 10th, protesters outside the Washington Post charged the newspaper with being the State Department's mouthpiece in covering up decades of CIA cooperation with torture by right-wing regimes in Central America, and involvement on both sides of the "war on drugs." Particular attention was given to the alleged 2004 "suicide" of former Iran-Contra reporter Gary Webb, found with TWO gunshot wounds to the head.

Upon conclusion of the rally at the Washington Post, protesters marched through the streets to the Dept of Justice to join in solidarity with the mothers of those slain by police and their supporters.
