Will Obama's Visit to Hiroshima Ease 70 Years of Nuclear Fallout?

Hosted by

Barack Obama is the first sitting US President to visit Hiroshima. He spoke with emotion as he acknowledged the role America played 70 years ago in dropping nuclear bombs first on Hiroshima and then, three days later, on Nagasaki. From the start, Obama has framed his purpose in this trip not as an apology, but rather, a reckoning with history. Barbara Bogaev guest hosts.

Later on the program, a new and gentler method of police interrogation -- based on research into the failure of the war on terror's brutal techniques.
