From director Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) comes a gripping investigation into the homicide of an innocent taxi driver at the Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan, exposing a Bush Administration policy of detention and interrogation that condones torture and the abrogation of human rights. It's the most incisive examination to date of the Administration's willingness, in its prosecution of the "war on terror," to undermine the essence of the rule of law. What happens when a few men expand the wartime powers of the executive to undermine the very principles on which the United States was founded? Incorporating rare and never-before-seen images from inside the Bagram, Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo Bay prisons, and interviews with former government officials, interrogators, prison guards, reporters and the families of tortured prisoners, the documentary dissects the progression of the Administration's policy on torture from the secret role of key administration figures, such as Dick Cheney, Alberto Gonzales and others, to the soldiers in the field.
