Torturing Democracy: A Documentary That Could Put Dick Cheney Out Of Our Misery

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Torturing Democracy,
an expose of how and why America came to be involved in open
large-scale torture of prisoners (many of whom were simply shepherds captured by mountain tribesmen and sold into captivity), is now available for viewing online.

As Scott Horton reported last month, PBS can't find a time slot for this Frontline documentary until January 21, 2009 — the day after Bush and Cheney are scheduled to leave office.

Horton has reported more recently that this documentary could help to provide "A Ticket to The Hague for Dick Cheney". Why? Because it has the power to change the minds of influential people in denial.

Horton explains:
Gene Burns
is one of the nation’s most popular talk radio hosts. For years he has
dismissed accounts of torture; America, he has said, does not torture.
But last night, after watching Torturing Democracy
and realizing that he had not understood how important and serious an
issue torture had become, Burns abruptly changed his tune. Here’s a transcript of his remarks.
