Barr Open at CNN


Former Rep. Bob Barr (R-Ga.) has joined Cable News Network as a regular contributor.

Barr -- who is currently the 21st Century Liberties Chair for Freedom and Privacy at the American Conservative Union -- will offer analysis and insight about politics, law and international affairs.

"Bob's experiences not only as a former congressman, but also a former U.S. attorney, CIA officer and privacy-rights consultant, will provide our viewers with a unique perspective of many political, legal and international issues," CNN/U.S. senior vice president of news Sue Bunda said in a prepared statement. "We look forward to his contributions to our broadcasts."
