Interview with Bruce Fein, former assistant deputy attorney general under President Ronald Reagan, conducted by Scott Harris

taxcuts Under President Bush, many terrorist suspects who were rounded up after the 9/11 attacks were designated as "unlawful enemy combatants" and imprisoned without charge or trial at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba U.S. detention camp and elsewhere.

Interview with Wendell Potter, former health insurance executive turned whistle-blower, conducted by Scott Harris

healthcare In their first week as the new majority in the House of Representatives, the Republican party has pledged to schedule a vote to repeal the health care reform law passed by the previous Democratic Congress and signed into law by President Obama. With a 49-seat advantage in the House, the GOP will almost certainly succeed in passing repeal legislation. But with a Democratic Senate and the power of a presidential veto standing in their way, the Republican's repeal effort will merely be a symbolic gesture toward their conservative base. Acknowledging the obstacles of repeal, House GOP leaders say they will attempt to de-fund implementation of the new health care reform law. Story continues
