Marjorie Cohn of the National Lawyer's Guild speaks about the use of rendition under the Obama administration.

Cohn, professor at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, says that instead of leaving the door open for the CIA to continue to engage in the rendition of terrorism suspects to other countries so long as the process is somehow handled "humanely", the Obama administration should end renditions altogether and prosecute those who have ordered renditions since 2001.

Clarifying last week's remarks on our new president

 Several listeners have let us know that they thought we were too hard on President Obama last week. Give him a break, they said. He's only been on the job a little while.

This week we aim to clear the air. Let's start by saying unequivocally that we're still in the president's camp, emphatically so. But we're still going to do what we said we would during the campaign -- call for Obama to do the right thing.
