“What makes the situation doubly disturbing is that we also know that they don't know what's going on!”
-- Harvey Wasserman, senior editor at The Free Press

Interview with Harvey Wasserman, senior editor, FreePress.org and author of "The Last Energy War" and "Solartopia: Our Green-Powered Earth AD 2030", conducted by Scott Harris
High levels of radiation at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant complex is reported to be a major obstacle to regaining control of four of the six reactors there that lost their cooling systems to the tsunami triggered by the devastating March 11 earthquake. U.S.-made robots that recently entered two of the reactor buildings detected such high levels of radiation that the dangerous conditions found there prevented workers from being able to make critical repairs to the broken cooling systems. Although the nuclear plant’s operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, has estimated that it would take six to nine months to stop radiation leaks at the four broken reactors at Fukushima, many nuclear experts are skeptical. One major problem is the growing evidence that the reactor pressure vessel at Unit 2 may be cracked and leaking nuclear material. Story continues
Interview with Steven Reisner, psychologist, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
Psychologist Steven Reisner is an outspoken critic of those in his profession who participated in coercive interrogations, or torture, which he says is defined as treatment that injures a prisoner for the purpose of extracting information. Reisner maintains that torture takes many forms, but that emotional and psychological torture techniques -- such as sleep deprivation, isolation and humiliation -- leave more serious, though invisible scars, than the physical tactics usually thought of as torture, such as applying electric shocks or waterboarding.

Interview with Michael Ratner, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights, conducted by Scott Harris
After almost a year in office, the Obama administration’s Attorney General Eric Holder announced in November 2009 that the President had decided to try 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other accused co-conspirators in civilian court in New York City. Over the ensuing months initial political support for the decision eroded – and a fire storm of criticism soon erupted with fear about such a trial in New York City becoming a magnet for new terrorist attacks -- and concern about the enormous expense that would be incurred for security to protect the city during the trial.
