FROM THIS EPISODE

President Obama has set up a new team to question terrorist suspects, with less authority for the CIA and more for the White House and the Justice Department. At the same time, more details are being revealed about past abuses, including the use of a gun and a power drill. Will a special prosecutor reopen investigations? Also, industrial agriculture means more food at lower prices than ever before, but are there hidden costs to land, water and even human health? Should Americans be asked to pay more for what's called a "sustainable" system? Could it feed as many people?
