Antiwar Radio: Ivan Eland

Ivan Eland, Senior Fellow at The Independent Institute and regular contributor to Antiwar.com, discusses his prescient article “A Double Standard for the Ultimate Penalty” about the protests against convicted cop-killer Troy Davis’s execution and the stony silence about US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki’s inclusion on the government’s assassination list (without conviction or even charge); saying goodbye to Fifth Amendment protection against punishment without due process; why the government faces more accountability when wiretapping Americans than when killing them; and the insanity of trusting Barack Obama’s administration (or any other) with correctly identifying and punishing perpetrators of crimes, in the total absence of judicial review.
