03/22/11 – Scott Horton – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 22, 2011 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses the “Two New OLC Opinions on Warrantless Surveillance;” the mysterious “program” of unspecified purpose related to NSA data mining; the (sometimes) conflicting legal opinions of OLC lawyers John Yoo and Jack Goldsmith; the NSA’s powerful surveillance algorithms; the differing Fourth Amendment protections for foreign and domestic communications; John Yoo’s willingness to trade preposterous legal opinions (much desired by the Bush administration to justify their criminal behavior) for high office; and Obama’s illegal and immoral war on Libya.
