Summary
The program traces how decisions made in Washington, D.C. in the immediate aftermath of September 11th led to a robust interrogation policy that laid the groundwork for prisoner abuse in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, and Iraq. The program provides the context for understanding how the rules were confused, how lines of authority were blurred, and what happens when the authorization of "coercive interrogation" makes it way into the battle zone. The program focuses on the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq as a case study in prisoner abuse
