Glenn Greenwald talks about How Would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President Run Amok.
Greenwald, a constitutional law attorney, didn't start off political. Then came September 11, 2001. Greenwald's disinterest in politics was replaced by patriotism, and he supported the war in Afghanistan. But as he saw Americans and others being disappeared, jailed and tortured, without charges or legal representation, he began to worry. And he began to write. His daily blog, Unclaimed Territory, is read by journalists and politicians, and was even quoted by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) at the recent censure resolution hearings.
Glenn Greenwald is a constitutional law attorney and author of the political blog "Unclaimed Territory." His writing has also appeared on AlterNet and in American Conservative Magazine. Greenwald has appeared on numerous television and radio programs, including C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," Air Americaâ€™s "Majority Report" and Public Radio Internationalâ€™s "To the Point." His reporting and analysis have been credited in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Salon, and Slate, among others.
