05/24/11 – Glenn Greenwald – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 24, 2011 | Interviews

Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com blogger and former constitutional lawyer, discusses his upcoming new book With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful; the Libya War’s illegality (whether governed by the Constitution or the War Powers Act); how Congress hides its support for war – and hedges its political liabilities – by ceding control to the president; the glaringly obvious two-tiered justice system; the slippery legal and moral slope of extrajudicial assassinations, whether failed or successful; how Obama continues the Bush administration’s pursuit of a unitary executive, beholden to no one; and why the Osama bin Laden boogeyman will soon be replaced with another, since the national security state must justify its immense size and scope.
