“…Up to date with the latest revelations, Torturing Democracy details how the government set aside the rule of law in its pursuit of harsh interrogations of suspected terrorists. It features in-depth interviews with numerous senior military and government officials…”
You can watch the film online at the documentary’s web site created in collaboration with the National Security Archive at George Washington University.
