About the Program

Former Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman argues that former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney broke several laws and international treaties during their tenure in office and should be held accountable.  The author contends that the Bush administration lied to the American public in the lead-up to the war in Iraq and permitted torturous practices in opposition to international agreements.  Elizabeth Holtzman speaks at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.
