On Memorial Day Weekend, America Reckons with Torture

“…if we really want to honor the Americans in uniform who gave their lives fighting for their country, we’ll redouble our efforts to make sure we’re worthy of their sacrifice; we’ll renew our commitment to the rule of law, for the rule of law is essential to any civilization worth dying for.”

– Bill Moyers and Michael Winship, special to the American Civil Liberties Union

On this weekend’s Moyers & Company, Larry Siems, director of the Freedom to Write and International Programs at PEN American Center, and Doug Liman, whose credits include The Bourne IdentityMr. and Mrs. Smith, and Fair Game, join Bill Moyers to talk about what we should be learning from and doing about U.S. torture tactics.
