From Watergate to Gitmo to Occupy, we’ll hear from Salon’s Glenn Greenwald on what he calls the rise of an American “lawless elite.”
Glenn Greenwald studied law and spent ten years as a litigator in federal and state courts across the country. Now he’s a big two-fisted progressive blogger and columnist for Salon.com. And he’s out with a blistering critique of what has happened to American law. We’ve stopped applying it to everyone, says Greenwald.
We’ve carved out an exemption for Americans in the halls of power. We’ve created what Greenwald calls a “lawless elite” that is running roughshod over our economy and national policy. Over American law.
This hour On Point: Glenn Greenwald, and liberty and justice for some.
