    I watched it. It was devastating. Unfortunately, I’ll bet few people saw it and even fewer care. After all, for most informed people, there wasn’t all that much new in the Frontline report, only people on camera talking about it. Is there any significant evidence the American people overall even care that much if we tortured people? Despite evidence, many will still claim it prevented terrorist attacks because it fits with the narrative they’ve bought into to justify the CIA program.

    Thank you, BR, for the heads up for this show or I would have missed it. It was a haunting refresher on just one of the many disgusting acts of the Bush administration. I am reminded that “when fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”
