(Update 1) (Update 2 – above)
Last month, I interviewed Harper‘s Scott Horton regarding a piece he had written on the efforts of several PBS officials, including Jay Rockefeller‘s wife (the CEO of Washington’s PBS affiliate) to block broadcast of the documentary Torturing Democracy, which compellingly documents how virtually all of the torture and other illegalities and abuses of America’s interrogation programs were authorized and ordered at the highest levels of the Bush administration (of which waterboarding is but one small example).
That documentary is now available to be viewed in its entirety online — here — and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

- Part 2 From the CIA to Guantanamo: Copying harsh Communist interrogation methods
- Part 3 While hundreds remain imprisoned in Guantanamo, Congress grants immunity to US Officials who may have ordered torture
