Investigate human rights violations under Bush

WHYY's Radio Times, December 8, 2008: "With pressure on president-elect Barack Obama to abolish torture, there are increasing calls for the establishment of a commission to explore what many say are human rights violations committed by the Bush Administration. We talk about the value of such an investigation, what it would accomplish and what it might look like. Our guests are attorney Scott Horton and former Congressman Mickey Edwards." Horton is the author of "Justice after Bush: Prosecuting an Outlaw Administration," Harper's, December 2008. WBUR's Here & Now, December 9, 2008: CIA veteran Robert Baer also advocates an investigation of the CIA's role in torture and rendition.
