Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes New Yorker writer Jane Mayer to discuss her book, "The Dark Side." She explains how, under the direction of Vice President Cheney and his Assistant David Addington, the Bush administration, contrary to American history and tradition, implemented a policy of torture and rendition in violation of U.S. and international law. She describes the resistance within the government and the military to these actions. Mayer also offers a compelling account of what happened to detainees under the Cheney/Addington regime. She analyzes long term consequences for the fight against terror and for U.S. moral leadership in the world. (#15229)
