Antiwar Radio: Karen Greenberg

Karen Greenberg, Director of the Center on National Security at Fordham University, discusses her article “How terrorist ‘entrapment’ ensnares us all;” setting a dangerous precedent by allowing law enforcement and paid informants to manufacture terrorist plots, ideology and materials; making the already-difficult entrapment legal defense even less likely to succeed; why terrorism suspects can’t expect to get fair trials; why preventive law enforcement is needed to some degree after 9/11; and how inter-agency rivalries (FBI-CIA) hinder open communication and may have allowed 9/11 to happen, but also prevent a unified police state from taking hold.
