Torture. The word appears almost daily in the headlines of newspapers across the country. As long-held secrets of the Bush administration's policies on detention and interrogation are revealed, Americans are increasingly asking questions: behind the closed doors of far-away prisons, what acts were committed in our name? Who committed these acts? And will they be held to account? Can a nation that has committed torture afford to walk away from its past? "Torture on Trial" is a Link TV original production that investigates the history of interrogations in the "War on Terrorism", and the growing movement calling for accountability for those who authorized and participated in torture. Featured guests include: George Hunsinger, Founder of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture; Jane Mayer, Staff Writer with The New Yorker & Author of "The Dark Side"; Mark Danner, UC Berkeley Journalism Professor, Author of "Torture and Truth" & Contributor to The New York Review of Books; Elisa Massimino, Executive Director of Human Rights First; Col. Lawrence Wilkerson (Ret.), Former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell; Maj. Matthew Alexander, U.S. Air Force Interrogator.
