The O’Dovovan Rossa Society will host a talk, “State Terrorism: From Torture to Murder – Lessons Learned from Abu Ghraib to Castlereagh,” with Brigader General Ret. James Cullen at 7:30 p.m., June 10 at Rocky Sullivan’s Pub, 34 Van Dyke Street (at Dwight Street) in Red Hook.

Brigadier General Ret. Cullen will discuss lessons learned from the torture⁄enhanced interrogation methods used in Iraq and GuantÁnamo under the Bush Administration.

He will draw parallels with the experience of Iraqi detainees under Cheney⁄Rumsfeld policies and interrogation methods used during the height of the recent conflict in Northern Ireland, drawing out the lessons learned from the murders of Irish human rights lawyers Pat Finucane and Rosemary Nelson.
