From the BILL MOYERS JOURNAL NEWSLETTER - Friday, July 25, 2008

“American government officials were kidnapping people, snatching them off of streets, and throwing them basically in dungeons.” - Jane Mayer

“You’ve got to untie the money knot. Then…the government will begin to work.” - Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings

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.

The legacy of torture and the next administration. Tell us what you think.

Money, politics and your local leaders. Weigh in.

Each week, video, transcripts, and further resources and investigations from BILL MOYERS JOURNAL are available online at
