Short Description: 
Mr. President: With Joe on leave, Abe looks at the 7-decade growth of executive power in the U.S.

It's been nearly 70 years since the U.S. Congress has declared war. The current administration has enshrined and deepened the surveillance state first ushered in under the auspices of the Cold War and the War on Drugs, and then imposed under G.W. Bush's War on Terror. Once-inviolable rights to counsel, swift trial, due process, security from search and seizure, and habeas corpus have been rendered insubstantial.

Drone Warfare, The Cost of War and Killer Hummingbirds

program date: 
Mon, 06/20/2011

 Brian of voices for creative non-violence describes the surreal and no less traumatic situation where drone-pilots operate their weapons from thousands of miles away while soaking up more of the bloody imagery. Brian argues that drone warfare is prefered because it makes war low-profile and seemingly cleann. When the drones can be deployed without judicial oversight to execute anyone the President orders, the nature of international law is made just as precarious. Brian also suspects the drones are making war more likely by lowering the cost for war, making it easier to chose war.
