Documenting Torture: Holding the United States Accountable
Until the 60 Minutes II report late April 2004, very few people in the United States had even heard of Abu Ghraib. On this edition, we trace the seeds of the prison scandal to 9/11 and previous to that time. We hear from survivors of torture, human rights advocates, and a soldier. And we’ll revisit the official government reaction. We also discuss U.S. involvement in torture in Central and South America and torture training at the School of the Americas. –
