The account from former Cia officer John Kiriakou Sheds new Light on decade old events that caused a Public inquiry in Canada a $ 10 million payout from the Federal government and unsuccessful lawsuits in the u. S. Its a rare peek into discussions within the u. S. Central intelligence Agency whose role in the 2002 03 events has never been publicly examined having remained off limits in Canadas inquiry.
