June 9, 2016

Rebecca Gordon, author of American Nuremberg: The U.S. Officials Who Should Stand Trial for Post-9/11 War Crimes, explains the origins of the Nuremberg tribunals. The political and practical implications of Nuremberg. The United States and the ICC. The ICC and political stability. What are war crimes? Are American Drone strikes war crimes? The Bush Administration’s use of torture in hyping intelligence for the invasion of Iraq. Does accountability mean criminal prosecution? Can peoples tribunals be effective and how we have mainstreamed torture.

On The Fun Half: The establishment and Donald Trump. A caller really does not like the Clintons. Bernie Sanders to help sure Donald Trump does not become President of the United States and to fight for DC Statehood. Ed Rendell, has an incoherent reason why Elizabeth Warren shouldn’t be Vice President. President Obama endorses Hillary and your calls and IMs.
