"The Red Cross Report, the Torture Memos, and Political Accountability"
Mark Danner, Professor of Journalism, University of California, Berkeley

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes writer Mark Danner for a discussion of his recent articles in the New York Review of Book on the torture policies of the Bush Administration. http://www.nybooks.com/articles/22530 The conversation addresses these topics: how interrogation turned to torture in response to the 911 attacks, the mind set of Cheney and Rumsfeld, the impact of the Church Committee reforms, the political dimensions of uncovering scandal in an empire that is also democracy, the implications of torture for American identity, and the politics and necessity of establishing accountability.
