Jane Mayer, staff writer for The New Yorker, recalls uncovering the role of the military's secret Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) program in building a "curriculum for torture."

-----

Jane Mayer takes a closer look at the ways she says Bush administration policies chipped away our nation's core principles, and addresses whether the Obama administration is on the same path or undoing the damage. She addresses constitutional gray areas -- torture, wire-tapping, presidential power and Guantanamo detainees. - Commonwealth Club of California

Jane Mayer joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in March, 1995. Based in Washington, D.C., she writes about politics for the magazine, and has been covering the war on terror. Recent subjects include Alberto Mora and the Pentagons secret torture policy, how the United States outsources torture (rendition), the prison at Guantanamo Bay, and the legality of C.I.A. interrogations. She has also written about George W. Bush, the bin Laden family, Sarah Palin, and the television show "24."
