Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
After 9/11, the U.S. government turned to torture-in defiance of domestic and international laws-to extract information about and from incarcerated terrorists and others who might become terrorists. Were it not for defense attorneys and human rights organizations, those prisoners would be ignored. But that's changing. The ACLU and the international literary and human rights group PEN have teamed up to comb through 150,000 declassified documents to produce The Torture Report: What the Documents Say About America's Post-9/11 Torture Program. Written by PEN's Larry Siems, staged readings of The Torture Report have been filmed by PEN and the ACLU to be made into a documentary by director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) called Reckoning with Torture. On this edition of Moyers and Company, Siems and Liman join Bill Moyers to discuss what we should be doing about U.S. torture tactics.
