03/05/12 – Glenn Greenwald – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 5, 2012 | Interviews

Salon.com blogger Glenn Greenwald discusses his article “The NYPD spying controversy: a microcosm for the 9/11 era;” the near-unanimous bipartisan support for spying on all Muslims in the NY City area – whether they are suspected of a crime or not; why there’s been little press coverage of the NYPD’s activities (since the issue can’t be framed as a Democrat v. Republican controversy); the eroding civil liberties of all Americans, including non-Muslims; Attorney General Eric Holder’s justification of extrajudicial assassination of US citizens, without oversight, at the president’s whim; and why advocates of trials, formal charges and the Constitution are often branded “terrorist sympathizers.”
