Army reservist Pfc. Lynndie England faces a military hearing at Fort Bragg, N.C., that will determine whether she'll be court-martialed for allegedly abusing detainees at Abu Ghraib. England's lawyers may seek to use Justice Department memos on the legal use of torture as part of her defense. Hear NPR's Ari Shapiro.
