Human rights for prisoners in the U.S. as well as abroad

A new report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee finds that the CIA did not fully inform the government about the methods it used for what it called " enhanced interrogation," techniques President Obama calls torture. The report also determined that the brutal methods used, including things like waterboarding, did not lead to any important intelligence leads, a claim which has been made by the CIA. We'll discuss the treatment of prisoners both here in the US and beyond with Steven Hawkins, executive director of Amnesty International USA. Hawkins is in Chicago for Amnesty USA's 2014 conference "Bringing Human Rights Home." (Photo: AP/Charles Dhaparak)
