A Department of Justice report will advise prosecuting cases where CIA operatives went beyond legal guidelines for interrogating detainees, according to the New York Times. A former interrogator agrees that the law should be followed in cases of abuse. “What I’m for is the enforcement of the law,” said Matthew Alexander.

Alexander debated former CIA operative Wayne Simmons on Fox & Friends Monday. Simmons thinks the prosecution of interrogation abuses will put the country at risk.
