Obama’s new drone checklist, dishonoring veterans, and prosecuting hactivists
Abby Martin talks to Marjorie Cohn, professor of Human Rights at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, about Obama’s pre-conditions for drone use, his Orwellian counter-terrorism speech, and the most recent updates on Gitmo. Then, the importance of the Memorial Day holiday and how US military families are among the most affected by the federal budget cuts known as the ‘sequester’. Finally, an interview with Abi Hassen, mass defense coordinator for the National Lawyers Guild, about the case of Jeremy Hammond, his plea deal, and its larger implications on freedom of information and online activism.
