The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses the dismissal of the CCR/ACLU lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s authority to order the targeted killing of US citizen Anwar Al-Aulaqi; the legal paradox that requires the government to obtain a warrant for wiretapping but allows summary execution with no judicial oversight; why the government will probably make limited use of extrajudicial assassination but will not repudiate the executive authority to do so; Nigeria’s indictment of Dick Cheney for bribery that may require the US to deal with an extradition request; and how the US will probably seek to extradite Julian Assange as a material witness against Bradley Manning in an attempt to discredit WikiLeaks and deter future leakers.
