So, Billy Graham will replace 60 Minutes again this weekend?
ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero will discuss the ongoing abuse of detainees and prisoners in U.S. military custody, and the erosion of America's moral leadership in the wake of continuing disclosures of abuse.

Tune in this weekend:

Friday, April 29: PBS "NOW" at 8:30 pm ET and again Sunday at 11:00 pm ET (check local listings)

Sunday, May 1: CBS "60 Minutes" at 7:00 pm ET (check local listings)

The ACLU has played a pivotal role in bringing the abuse and torture carried out by the United States government to light. These two appearances allow Anthony to address specific allegations of torture and the lack of accountability at the highest levels, even a year after the photographs from Abu Ghraib became public.

1. ACLU?
"The ACLU has played a pivotal role in bringing the abuse and torture carried out by the United States government to light."

I believe it was Semour Hersch who got information from top pentagon brass. I wish the ACLU would fight the Patriot Act and abuse, but they seem to pre-ocupied with suing cities to make them change 100 year old seals because it had a picture of a mission or church on it.

2. I live in New York....
they'd never do that here. For the folks in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama etc. that could be a problem. Maybe they can burn some books or something.

3. They do it here in Iowa
They either run a St. Jude special or Billy Graham. What a shame it would be if the American people actually learned a little truth.
