TORTURED LAW (2009): Film Trailer from AFJ

President Barack Obama ended six years of American torture of suspected terrorists at the hands of the Bush administration in the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks.

But the operatives who executed those policies, the superiors who ordered them, and the lawyers who provided the legal cover have not been held accountable.

Will Attorney General Eric Holder conduct a full criminal investigation that follows where the evidence leads, up the chain of command? Or will he prosecute only low-level CIA operatives who exceeded the grisly authority provided by the “torture memos?” What happens to the lawyers whose legal opinions paved the way for this gross violation of human rights?
