works to heal the wounds of torture on individuals, their families and their communities and to stop torture worldwide. 

In today's world there are more health care professionals involved in the design and structuring of torture than there are involved in providing care for survivors," said Douglas Johnson, executive director of the Center for Victims of Torture in Minneapolis. We also speak with professor Steven Miles, author of "Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity, and the War on Terror."
As we broadcast from Twin Cities Public Television in St. Paul, Minnesota, we turn now to the issue of torture. Minneapolis is the home of the Center for Victims of Torture of Torture - an organization that works to heal the wounds of torture on individuals, their families and their communities and to stop torture worldwide.

Today, we are joined by the center's executive director Douglas Johnson. Doctor Steven Miles is also with us. He is a professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School and a faculty member of its Center for Bioethics. He is the author of the book "Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity, and the War on Terror."

But before we turn to our guests, we play an excerpt from Wednesday's Democratic debate at Dartmouth College. It aired on MSNBC and was moderated by Tim Russert.
