Torture HearingsStreaming Video - 2009
On Capitol Hill, members of Congress have been interviewing witnesses and investigating the treatment of detainees suspected of terrorism. This edition of the Journal summarizes those hearings and gets perspective from journalist Jane Mayer on the debate over whether the U.S. sanctioned torture to prosecute the war on terror. Mayer's recent book, The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned into a War on American Ideals, documents the war on terror and the struggle over whether the President should have limitless power to wage it. Also on the program, former Democratic Senator Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings gives his views on the stranglehold of money on Washington.
