01/27/12 – Marcy Wheeler – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jan 27, 2012 | Interviews

Blogger Marcy Wheeler discusses the DC Circuit court’s rejection of Guantanamo prisoner Adnan Farhan Abd Al Latif‘s successful habeas corpus petition; the DOD’s 2006 determination that Latif should be released; the DC court’s assertion that government intelligence must be presumed valid, essentially gutting habeas rights and openly defying the SCOTUS Boumediene decision; the DOJ’s prosecution of former CIA officer John Kiriakou, building on Obama’s record setting witch-hunt of government whistleblowers; and the novel tactic of charging whistleblowers under the Espionage Act (it wasn’t done before because “it’s stupid”).
