Torturing Democracy

Tonight, while doing an hour on the elliptical at the gym, I watched much of a documentary on WNET called "Torturing Democracy."

The program detailed the interrogation of enemy combatants during the Bush Administration at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp as well as the abuse of the prisoners at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

It was very disturbing, notably the interviews with the U.S. Department of Defense attorneys who argued against the use of torture in defiance of the Geneva Conventions.

You can watch the entire program on-line here or here.
