05/20/11 – Christopher Anders – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 20, 2011 | Interviews

Christopher Anders, senior legislative counsel in the ACLU’s Washington Legislative Office, discusses the stealthy attempt in Congress to give the president unlimited authority to wage war worldwide, far beyond what the AUMF allows; the expiration of the already-dubious 60 day grace period on waging war in Libya without Congressional consent; why you should take the opportunity to pester your representative while Congress is on recess; how a permanent state of war destroys civil liberties in short order; and why, if a threat to the US really exists, Congress needs to define it, debate a course of action, and then declare war if necessary.
