BILL MOYERS JOURNAL | Congressional Torture Hearings | Trailer | PBS

Duration: 00:34

BILL MOYERS JOURNAL goes inside last week's hearings on torture in Congress and gets perspective from journalist Jane Mayer on the debate over whether the U.S. sanctioned torture to prosecute the war on terror. Mayer's recent book, THE DARK SIDE: THE INSIDE STORY OF HOW THE WAR ON TERROR TURNED INTO A WAR ON AMERICAN IDEALS, documents the war on terror and the struggle over whether the president should have limitless power to wage it.

Also on the program, former Democratic Senator Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings gives his views on the stranglehold of money on Washington. "You've got to untie the money knot," he tells Moyers. "Then...the government will begin to work."
