Antiwar Radio: Jim Bovard

Jim Bovard, author of Attention Deficit Democracy, discusses the post 9/11 roundup and detention of innocents, the FBI practice of searching the phonebook to find Muslim “suspected terrorists,” the minor immigration violations turned into long prison terms through coerced confessions, how John Ashcroft expanded the definition of “treason” to include criticism of government actions and the persistence of “sovereign immunity” claims in the post-Enlightenment Western world.
