Welcome to Lawfare No Bull. We have been doing no bull podcasts, mostly for congressional hearings for a long time on the Lawfare podcast feed, we decided to do more of them incorporating a wider range of the public sound of the world of National Security

So we spun it off as its own podcast. No Bull Lawfare. It will feature primary source audio from a range of sources, speeches, congressional hearings, court proceedings, think tank events, things that we think are interesting and that we think you'll think are interesting. Sometimes edited, sometimes not.

Thanks for listening.

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments last Wednesday in a case testing the limits of public disclosure about the CIA's secret torture program after the Sept. 11 attacks.

The central issue of the case concerns whether a detainee at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, who has never been charged with a crime can subpoena testimony from the CIA contractors who supervised his torture.

Abu Zubaydah was the first prisoner held by the CIA to undergo extensive torture.
