    New debate has emerged from the release of the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel memos approving extreme measures of interrogation under the Bush administration. But, as the president acknowledges "a dark and painful chapter," how should he respond to allegations of torture? Bill Moyers sits down with Bruce Fein, former deputy attorney general under President Ronald Reagan and chairman of the American Freedom Agenda, and Mark Danner, who has been reporting on the US treatment and interrogation of detainees for the New York Review of Books. Also on the program, the Journal profiles Steve Meacham, a Massachusetts community organizer fighting to keep working people in their homes.
