The politics of torture, via radio

Listening post

 

 

Today's entry is auditory only. I was a studio guest this morning on Philadelphia NPR; the "Radio Times" show devoted an hour to the burgeoning torture story, and I mostly talked about the political ramifications. Scott Horton, a Columbia University law professor who has been tracking the story on dailybeast.com, addressed the legal dimensions. The show is now archived for online listeners.

Meanwhile, today the Republicans suffered yet another electoral defeat. Nothing new there.
