Antiwar Radio: Scott Horton

The other Scott Horton (no relation), heroic anti-torture human rights lawyer, Columbia University lecturer and noted author of the blog “No Comment” at Harper’s magazine, discusses the erosion of the rule of law as binding on government power, the Senate’s attempt to push back by again outlawing torture, Justice Scalia’s scandalous view of “’so-called’ torture,” the Taxi to the Dark Side, the “Kubark technique” of sensory deprivation/overload, the innocence of 92% of the Guantanamo detainees, hopes that the next administration will undo the Bush/Cheney torture policy, the difficulty of getting rid of the neocons like Cheney’s lawyer Jim Haynes, the military tribunal system, the persecution by the Justice Department of political opponents of the GOP and their refusal to prosecute rapes and murders committed by contractors in Iraq.
