Michael Mukasey: Waterboarding is not torture

CIA Director John Brennan on Thursday defended the agency's harsh interrogation techniques, saying they provided "useful" information to authorities, including in the raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden. But he said it is "unknowable" what information could specifically be attributed to those techniques.

OutFront, Michael Mukasey served as attorney general under President George W. Bush from 2007 through the end of his presidency. Mr. Mukasey opened an investigation into the CIA's destruction of the interrogation tapes of detainees captured after the 9/11 attacks. That investigation later expanded under Attorney General Eric Holder into a larger probe of the interrogation program and whether individuals should be charged with the crime of torture.

Famed Model Beverly Johnson claims Bill Cosby drugged her

(CNN) - In an essay for Vanity Fair, famed model Beverly Johnson accuses Bill Cosby of drugging her in a meeting at his Manhattan residence in the 1980s - adding herself to the list of women who have made accusations against the comedian in recent weeks.

"For a long time I thought it was something that only happened to me, and that I was somehow responsible. So I kept my secret to myself, believing this truth needed to remain in the darkness," she writes. "Now that other women have come forward with their nightmare stories, I join them."
