8/22/18 Bruce Fein on the American Empire

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Bruce Fein joins Scott to talk about U.S. complicity in war crimes by supporting brutal regimes oversees. He points out that according to international law, if the United States supports a country that’s at war, it becomes a co-belligerent and can legitimately be attacked, just like the original country. Unfortunately, despite some rhetoric to the contrary, President Trump seems just as willing as his predecessors to engage in unconstitutional wars and executive overreach.

Discussed on the show:

Bruce Fein is an attorney and former associate deputy attorney general and general counsel for the FCC. He writes regularly for The American Conservative, and you can follow him on Twitter @BruceFeinEsq.
