In his new book, "Torture Team," Philippe Sands argues that former Bush administration lawyers could be prosecuted abroad for endorsing interrogation techniques that constitute torture. Sands, an English lawyer who has done some work on behalf of British detainees at Guantanamo, analyzes the notorious memo that authorized a range of aggressive interrogation techniques. It was signed by the former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, on Dec. 2, 2002; it was retracted two months later.
