Torture. The word appears almost daily in the headlines of newspapers across the country. As long-held secrets of the Bush administration's policies on detention and interrogation are revealed, Americans are increasingly asking questions: behind the closed doors of far-away prisons, what acts were committed in our name? Who committed these acts? And will they be held to account? Can a nation that has committed torture afford to walk away from its past?

"Torture on Trial" is a Link TV original production that investigates the history of interrogations in the "War on Terrorism", and the growing movement calling for accountability for those who authorized and participated in torture.
