Obama Administration Program that Assassinates U.S. Citizens Challenged in FOIA Lawsuit

Interview with Nathan Wessler, national security fellow with the ACLU’s National Security Project, conducted by Scott Harris

drone

As the U.S. military and intelligence agencies have increased their use of unmanned, weaponized drone aircraft to kill suspected terrorists abroad, the Obama administration’s decision to assassinate U.S. citizens has provoked alarm and many questions from civil liberties advocates and the news media. On Sept. 30, 2011 the CIA and the military’s Joint Special Operations Command launched missiles from a drone over Yemen, killing alleged terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen born in New Mexico, and Samir Khan, also a U.S. citizen. Anwar al-Awlaki’s son, Abdulrahman, a 16-year-old U.S. citizen born in Colorado, was killed two weeks later in another U.S. drone attack in Yemen.  Story continues

Interview with Terry O'Neill, president of National Organization for Women, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

rush

On his Feb. 29 nationally syndicated radio program, Rush Limbaugh attacked a female law student named Sandra Fluke, who had volunteered to testify before a congressional committee about the need for birth control to be covered under the Affordable Care Act. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, Darrel Issa, had earlier prevented Fluke from testifying before his committee, because he said, the focus of the hearing was not on women's health, but on religious persecution.  Story continues

Justice Department and Courts Block Restrictive Voting Laws Enacted in GOP-Controlled States

Interview with Keesha Gaskins, senior counsel with the Democracy Program, Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School, conducted by Scott Harris

voter

Since the mid-term elections of 2010, when Republican party majorities took control over many state legislatures and governor’s seats, the nation has seen a flood of bills restricting access to voting, imposing onerous ID laws, eliminating voter registration programs and curtailing early voting schedules. Although the rationale presented for the passage of these laws is to prevent voter fraud, there is little or no evidence that voter fraud has been a problem in any state or federal elections over the past decade.  Story continues
