Antiwar Radio: Glenn Greenwald

Glenn Greenwald, former constitutional lawyer and current Salon.com blogger, discusses the media driven myth of a truly oppositional US political system, hypocritical progressive support for the same Obama policies that were denounced during the Bush administration, how conservative outrage over FDR’s New Deal and LBJ’s Great Society subsided when the programs were continued by Republican presidents, the unusual upholding of the Constitution in ACORN’s lawsuit (PDF) against Congress and the open question of whether the Supreme Court will allow indefinite detentions of “enemy combatants.”
