Prisoner Interrogations in the War on Terror

Hosted by

Republican Senators are still resisting President Bush's demand to "clarify" the Geneva Conventions so the CIA can be tough on prisoners in the war on terror.  What does he mean by "alternative interrogation techniques?"  How are they different from torture?  Is there excessive concern for prisoners' health and safety?  Also, President Bush meets with Palestinian President Abbas, and yesterday's coup in Thailand.  What's the future of democracy for an important US ally?
