Iraq, Torture and the Crisis in American Leadership
As the nomination of Michael Mukasey demonstrated, the issue of torture remains on Washington’s front burner. The Bush Administration continues to assert the right to use torture techniques, including waterboarding, in the interrogation of detainees in the war on terror. In the meantime, torture has begun to pervade the popular culture, as demonstrated on programs like ’24.’ What can persons of conscience do to oppose a government bent on immoral and unlawful conduct? What can they do to oppose the saturation of media with sadistic, torture-related violence?
Featured Speaker: Scott Horton, Harper’s Magazine
Also: Eric Fair, a former interrogator in Iraq, now an M.Div. student, Profs. George Hunsinger and Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary
