Set up a Truth and Reconciliation Commission? Prosecute them all? Leave it Congress? Just forget about it and move on? This week at TPMCafe we’re discussing what to do about continuing secrets, lawlessness and law-breaking of the Bush administration. We’re focusing discussion around a new article out in the Washington Monthly, ‘Last Secrets of the Bush Administration: How to find out what we still don’t know‘.
Joining for the conversation are Scott Horton, New York attorney specializing in human rights law and the law of armed conflict, and regular contributor to Harper’s; Suzanne Spaulding, lawyer specializing in national security issues, including homeland security, intelligence, and terrorism; Daniel Larison, Ph.D student at the University of Chicago and host of the blog, Eunomia; Mickey Edwards, former congressman (R-OK), lecturer at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson school, and Vice President of the Aspen Institute; Anne Weismann, Chief Counsel at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington; and finally, Kate Martin, director of the Center for National Security Studies.
