A major new report on the use of torture was recently released. It is an unquestionably non-partisan report that raises deeply troubling questions about the status of America itself in the wake of the approval of the use of torture at the highest levels. Guest is the Constitution Project’s senior researcher and writer Alka Pradhan. The most troubling aspect is the current lack of accountability. The report details what happened, how it happened, but does not answer the question of: what if we do as Obama suggested, don’t look back just look forward. What does it mean for America if we do just put this matter behind us? That’s the truly frightenting part. Of course we still can face history and face ourselves.
