05/12/11 – Scott Horton – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 12, 2011 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses winning the National Magazine Award for Reporting for his article “The Guantanamo “suicides”: A Camp Delta sergeant blows the whistle;” the still-developing story, including more details on the infamous “Camp No”; why torture still isn’t justified and didn’t help find bin Laden (according to John McCain); the scope and severity of the torture programs under the Bush and Obama administrations; the strangely outdated WikiLeaks Guantanamo documents; and how the DC Circuit Court is working to undermine the SCOTUS ruling on Boumediene v. Bush and keep Guantanamo open forever.
