Dominican College announced that distinguished military leader and expert on the national benefit of closing Guantanamo and ending the use of torture to extract military information, James P. Cullen, brigadier general, US Army (ret.), will deliver the address at the college’s commencement exercises on May 18, 2014.
Retired Brigadier General Cullen is part of a group of generals and admirals who strongly object to “enhanced” interrogation tactics the United States has employed in the War on Terror and who argue water-boarding and other extreme measures do not put the country in a stronger position to achieve its national security objectives. This group of leaders went to the White House to support President Obama as he signed executive orders putting a stop to tactics that could be considered torture.
James P. Cullen currently practices law in New York City. Dominican College commencement exercises will be held at the Westchester County Center.
