11/18/10 – Daphne Eviatar – The Scott Horton Show

by | Nov 18, 2010 | Interviews

Daphne Eviatar, Senior Associate in Law and Security for Human Rights First, discusses the relatively fair federal trial that ended in Ahmed Ghailani‘s conviction of a conspiracy charge related to the 1998 (US) Africa embassy bombings, another example of a civilian terrorism trial with a guilty verdict and no security threats (despite the fear-mongering of Liz Cheney’s Keep America Safe group), the far harsher sentences given in federal terrorism trials than in Guantanamo’s military commissions and why the prosecution of child-soldier Omar Khadr for war crimes is itself a war crime.
