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.

Karen Greenberg, executive director of the New York University Center on Law and Security, discusses her TomDispatch piece, “How to End the War on Terror,” substituting a managed risk strategy for the endless war on terrorism, why the “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh should be released from prison, and why terrorism trials should be handled by DOJ, not the military.

Karen Greenberg, executive director of the New York University Center on Law and Security, discusses her TomDispatch article, “America’s Growing Intolerance: How ‘Enemy Creep’ Is Guantanamo-izing America;” the mainstream American pastime of reviling Muslims and misunderstanding jihad; calling out intolerance to correct misplaced blame, not to scold politically incorrect speech; why “humanitarianism” and “democracy” are just words that give the US a blank check for militarism; and a federal judge’s effective endorsement of torture during the sentencing of Ahmed Ghailani, who was convicted on 1 of 284 counts related to the 1998 Africa embassy bombings.
