BTS 7/23/07: Torture; Impeachment; Morality and Politics

Listen: Play - Download

On tonight’s Beneath The Surface we look at the wounds to our democracy – torture, secret detention, illegal surveillance, and the lies that got us into war in Iraq and more with Shane Kadidal of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Then Allen Ides of Loyola Law School joins us to discuss a remedy: impeachment – as an educative tool that also repudiates the crimes of this administration.

We end tonight’s program with Richard Lichtman on the corruption of morality in politics – and its systemic underpinning, as well as the corrosive legacy that could survive for use by future administrations if left unchallenged.
