Your Call: American Nuremberg

rummy_bushy_cheney.jpg

  On the May 17th edition of Your Call, we'll have a conversation with professor Rebecca Gordon about her new book "American Nuremberg: The U.S. Officials Who Should Stand Trial for Post-9/11 War Crimes."

Gordon argues that to this day, the people of the United states have never had a full accounting of all that has been done in their name as part of an apparently endless war on terror, nor there has been any real public reckoning for those officials who are responsible for the deeply troubling actions undertaken by Washington since 9/11. Who should be held responsible for the crimes committed since the onset of the US "global war on terror"? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Rebecca Gordon, professor of philosophy at University of San Francisco
