(From South Dakota to Abu Ghraib)

Download Hour1 Download Hour2Since the revelations of programmatic sexualized torture at Abu Ghraib and many other US military prisons, a few low level personnel have been given show trials as "bad apples", in order to deflect blame from the commanders and civilian officials such as Donald Rumsfeld and Alberto Gonzales, who advocated the torture policy and now seek to deny it because it has been exposed. This week we hear two speakers on the deeper purpose, why it is routine US policy.
