An Oscar and Peabody winning documentary on the role of torture in U.S. military prisons since 9/11. Interviews with former military and Bush officials, guards, and prisoners reveal the history of torture as an intelligence gathering technique from Guantanamo Bay to Afghanistan as a strategic American military response to the War on Terror. A case study of an Afghan taxi driver Dilawar, who died five days after U.S. military detained him, provides a central narrative thread.
