On GPS Sunday: Discussing the Senate Intelligence Committee's torture report

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: Fareed starts with a panel discussion on the revelations from the Senate Intelligence Committee’s torture report. Did Congress know about everything the CIA was doing? He speaks with Jane Harman, a then-member of the House Intelligence Committee and now president of the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington.

Fareed will also hear a perspective on whether the techniques outlined in the report were justifiable from John Yoo, a former official at the Department of Justice and author of the widely discussed "torture memos."

Also giving his take, former Jordanian Foreign Minister Marwan Muasher discusses whether the Senate committee’s report will damage U.S. standing around the world, especially in the Arab world.

Then, Moazzam Begg wants an apology. He was held in U.S. prisons and says he was abused and witnessed torture. What's his response to the report? Fareed asks him.

Plus, the man who might be Israel's next prime minister? Fareed speaks with Naftali Bennett, the economic minister in Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet and the leader of the powerful "Jewish Home" party. He explains why he is adamantly opposed to a two-state solution.

      A'Men... Mr. President, who will chosen by the crowd, thieving bankers, torturing politicians, killer cops, over legal/pot, to be released by President Obama in a customary pardon before the feast of Passover. In Matthew 27:16, Obama was called a “notorious prisoner” of washington politics...

      Faux banasy, I am not Indian nor Hindu.

      Blue Saffron,

      Why aren’t you chastising your name-stealing cohorts for the filthy abuse they are heaping on those whose names have been stolen/insulted when they post in the first place?

      Such as the person who stole my name above?

      After all, they all worship you. One word from you and they will stop.

      Right?

      Your goal is to “clean up these forums”, correct? Think you can start with your “followers”?

        Well look what the wind brought in. And just when I was seeing less of you and chrissy. I sure do hope you're having a fine evening. Seems your name has been hi-jacked quiet a bit lately. Well maybe you'll fall by the wayside like your friends Allan Kinsman and Ferhat. Never cared for either as I don't particularly care for you either. Good night, honey. Have fun with the trolls.

    Soon, non-jews will become the majority in democratic Israel, and a Muslim will be voted-in as Prime Minister. Nothing short of making Palestine a separate state can prevent this eventuality. Imagine Israel being led by Muslims. It will be interesting, to say the least.

        It's already happening. Muslims in Israel have been producing twice as many voters as Jews have for many years. Soon, the majority of Israel will be non-Jewish, and elect Muslims to lead Israel. It's simple arithmetic, really.

    The big story out of GITMO isn't torture. It's the fact that almost all of the 600 men illegally detained at GITMO all used to work for the same company. The Bridas corporation that used to legally operate Afghanistan's massive TAPI pipeline infrastructure before US/Bush troops seized control.

      He's a paid actor, Olympia. It was all scripted. The prisoners at GITMO all used to work for the same company that operated Afghanistan's pipelines until US/Bush troops seized control. Most Bridas corporation employees were shot on the job...as "suspected terrorists". The 600 survivors of the US invasion and occupation of Afghanistan were thrown into GITMO to keep it all a secret.

    Moazzam Begg you will never get an apology. You cannot admit that the torture in Islamic countries is as awful as the one you pretend having received. Nothing coming out of your mouth is believable. You live in Birmingham, UK and people know how bad that place is in England. You should be expelled from UK.

    Thanks to Jane Harman for her candid statements – for rebutting John Yoo's statement and for stating that Congress 'was not faultless'. Thanks also for her service – she did push back. While the CIA implemented a flawed program, the Senate Report is also flawed – the Bush-Administration, Dept. of Justice, Congress, and the CIA all are complicit. Call torture a crime and then pardon them all – but de-bar the lawyers – the only way to accountability!! thanks

      The big story of GITMO isn't torture. Torture is the fall guy. The big story is that all 600+ detainees at GITMO worked for the same company. The Bridas corporation that operated Afghanistan's massive TAPI pipelines. The ones US/Bush troops seized control of many years ago, and now use them to transport their Carlyle Group Caspian Basin oil to China.
      Interestingly, The Carlyle Group that now sells oil to China via Afghan pipelines was originally funded by the Bush and Bin Laden families back in the 1980's.

    Maybe if we admit we torture people a little bit they won't notice that all of GITMO prisoners worked for the same outfit in Afghanistan. And won't notice that we didn't water board OBL's many wives and children for intel.
