Torture on Trial

Torture on Trial

A documentary produced by Link TV describes how the interrogation methods used by the U.S. military and CIA in the "war on terror" were authorized at the highest levels of the Bush administration. The documentary, Torture on Trial, features interviews with investigative journalists Jane Mayer and Mark Danner, who leaked a confidential International Committee of the Red Cross report characterizing the abuses as torture, as well as with military personnel who oppose the use of such methods. The documentary also highlights calls from Elisa Massimino, executive director of Human Rights First, and George Hunsinger, founder of the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, for a full accounting of the Bush administration's role in authorizing the harsh treatment of key detainees. Funded by the Open Society Institute, the 30-minute vide can be viewed on the Link TV Web site.
