If you were alive in 1960, the name Francis Gary Powers likely rings a bell. Even younger people know the name if they’ve spent much time studying Cold War history.
The son of the famous downed U-2 spy plane pilot shared some of that history during a presentation today to the John Locke Foundation’s Shaftesbury Society. In the video clip below, Francis Gary Powers Jr. describes his father’s approach to interrogation from his Soviet captors.
Dec. 21 update: At the speaker’s request, the video of the full presentation has been removed.
