2/6 Scott Horton: The Drone Strike Memo

February 6, 2013

Harper’s Magazine’s, Scott Horton, explained what is in the Justice Departments white paper on drone policy, why the definition of imminence in the memo is crucial, what government officials have legal authority to order drone strikes according to the memo, how the memo reads as a retroactive justification of policy and Will the John Brennan nomination hearings bring out more information?

On The Better Half: we hear from a recovering Libertarian, Sam talks about the new documentary The Great Book Robbery, a libertarian caller has problems with trains and health care and wants a “fierce argument” from Sam and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
