9/3/12 The Other Scott Horton

The Other Scott Horton, international human rights lawyer and Harper’s journalist, discusses the official end to any chance Bush administration torture crimes will be prosecuted; why there was plenty of good evidence to get convictions, despite AG Eric Holder’s contrary claims; effective immunity for CIA-employed torturers/murderers, whose defense lawyers would finger Donald Rumsfeld and others in the Bush White House; Obama’s outright contempt for the rule of law; and a nostalgic look back at the Reagan years when the Executive was still accountable to Congress.

Antiwar Radio: The Other Scott Horton

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses the only law explicitly defined in the U.S. Constitution: treason, why the founding fathers made treason prosecutions difficult by design, the very serious charges facing accused “WikiLeaker” Bradley Manning (but treason and espionage aren’t among them), Mark Thiessen’s Washington Post op-ed on why “WikiLeaks must be stopped” and the double standard that allows pro-war pundits to leak government-favorable classified information without rebuke.

No Comment

I’m writing to report to you the sad news that world renowned human rights attorney and anti-torture hero, The Other Scott Horton, is hanging up his blogging cap and closing down No Comment at the Harper’s magazine Website.

The good news is that Scott says he’s got more important work to do that the blogging has been disrupting. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are witness to more good works by this champion of human liberty.

Best of luck to you Scott, we’ll be looking forward to hearing your wisdom again soon.
