by | Dec 2, 2010 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses the extraordinary effort by the US State Department to scuttle the indictments of American government and military officials in Spanish courts; how the US embassy in Madrid effectively manipulated Spanish prosecutors, judges and the judicial system at large; the leaked diplomatic cable addressed to Condi Rice about German rendition victim Khaled El-Masri and the successful US effort to stop the indictment of 13 CIA officers in a German court; the appearance that subsequent DOJ investigations were initiated only to provide an excuse for European governments to quash their own investigations; how the vigorous government cover-ups of Bush administration crimes shows Obama wasn’t kidding about not ‘looking back;’ and the pending Nigerian indictment of Dick Cheney in connection with the huge bribery scandal during his tenure as Halliburton CEO.
