Human Rights and Civil Liberties; Ten years After 9/11
There is no one better to address these issues than guest Michael Ratner. He is an author, an attorney and the President emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights , (CCR). As president he helped lead the fight to demand due process for the prisoners locked in Guantanamo. Over the past decade the CCR has used lawsuits, lobbying and public education to end the government's use of torture and extraordinary rendition. They've also played an important role in challenging the governments use of illegal and intrusive methods of surveillance against American Citizens. In this interview he talks about the National Security State we now live in. The legacy of 9/11 we leave our children.
