President Obama and former Vice President Cheney have been at odds over torture tactics and the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Cheney said repeatedly said he wants classified torture memos released. Rachel Maddow talks to HDNet’s Dan Rather, who recently interviewed a former Guantanamo prisoner who said he was tortured for seven years, and then released without charges.

This video is from MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, broadcast June 2, 2009.
