Taxi to the Dark Side

Plot Summary
This documentary explores the American military's use of torture by focusing on the unsolved murder of an Afhgani taxi driver who, in 2002, was taken for questioning at Bagram Force Air Base. Five days later, the man was dead. The medical examiner claimed the driver died from excessive physical abuse. Taking this case as a jumping-off point, the film examines wider claims of torture that occurred at bases like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay during the Bush administration.

    To the 'reviewer' who said 'leftist propaganda, stayhome, do your laundry instead'...It is people like you that think the US can do no wrong, that all calls to decency and honor are simply leftist propaganda, that are so self-centered and unfeeling, that wallow in righteous inanity while people suffer, die, and courageous people try to bring these injustices to light and make some impact on intelligent people. Please, YOU stay home and do your friggin laundry. You have no relevance in this discussion.
