Summary
How should America react to the Bush-era torture memos released by the Department of Justice? Should the nation reflect and move on or investigate and bring to trial those involved? In this edition of the Journal, Bill Moyers sits down with two people who have been thinking and writing about the morality and legality of America’s actions since 9/11: Bruce Fein, chairman of the American Freedom Agenda, and Mark Danner, who has been reporting on the treatment and interrogation of detainees for The New York Review of Books. Then, Moyers spotlights community organizer Steve Meacham of City Life/Vida Urbana, who is working to halt the tidal wave of evictions and foreclosures plaguing his Massachusetts community.
