After 9/11, the Bush administration declared that it would have to work through 'the dark side'. And it did: the Administration turned its back on the rules and on America's commitment to the dignity of every human person. It embraced torture, looking for legal advice that justified cruelty, and making sure that it found it. Voices of dissent - in the military and elsewhere - were pushed aside, as ideology and incompotence led to illegal interrogation techniques encouraged by Jack Bauer in 24.

In Torture Team, Philippe Sands travels around America, tracking down those responsible. In their own words, he shows how war crimes were committed. He opens the door to accountability and justice.
