The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses Israel’s failure to uphold the mark of a (somewhat) benevolent state: a high threshold for using deadly force against civilians, Israel’s purposeful destruction ofÂ Gaza’s economy to encourage deserters, the ignoble end of Helen Thomas’s estimable career in journalism, the ‘good faith’ defense for CIA torturers dreamed up by Dick Cheney and justified by the OLC ‘torture memos,’ the junk science used by doctors and psychologists to quantify acceptable pain levels inflicted on prisoners, the US departure from precedents set by Nuremberg war crimes prosecutions, a possible ‘Guantanamo suicides‘ link to CIA torture experimentation at Camp ‘No’ and the likely existence of more CIA ‘interrogation’ videos.
