2/8 Casual Friday: Chris Hayes & Frank Conniff

February 8, 2013

Chris Hayes, explained why the Brennan hearings focused so heavily on institutional jockeying, the policy consensus on targeted killing, the subjective reasoning behind the targeted killing program, how and when could the “War on Terror” end? The importance of defining peace time counter terrorism and the austerity caucus have lost some of their power but economic liberalism still lags behind social liberalism.

Frank Conniff, talked about his memories of working on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and his time working with Sam at Air America, the comedy pitches he is presenting to Al Jazeera, the writing he is doing for Current and he recommended the science fiction movie Looper.

On The Better Half: Fox Business says solar works in Germany because of how sunny Germany, the Bush family email accounts have been hacked, John Brennan won’t say whether or not water boarding is torture, Senator Richard Burr, takes the Brennan hearing as an opportunity to make a water boarding joke, the insights of a Fox News “Strategic Analyst” and your calls and IMS.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
