03/06/12 – Scott Horton – The Scott Horton Show

by | Mar 6, 2012 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses Attorney General Eric Holder’s unpersuasive speech defending extrajudicial assassination; the new (government-friendly) definitions of “due process,” “imminent threat,” and “battlefield;” the minimal US effort in arresting and trying terrorism suspects living abroad; the geographical limitations of drone strikes (because collateral damage of Europeans is unthinkable, whereas civilians in Yemen and Pakistan don’t matter); and whether Obama should be tried for the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki’s sixteen year old son.
