The Siege: Denzel’s Anti Torture speech (1998)



“Before 9/11, before GWB became President, a movie about a series of terrorist attacks in NYC leads to the President suspending the Constitution and declaring Martial Law.

In this scene, the General in charge (Willis) is about to use torture to interrogate an American Muslim suspect as a matter of expediency. FBI Agent Hubbard (Denzel Washington) reacts to the General’s plan with outrage.

Remember, this clip is from 1998.”
