Jeremy Scahill, Reporter, The Nation; Author, Dirty Wars
In conversation with Barry Eisler, Novelist; Blogger, Former CIA Operative
Has the country's effort to dispense international military justice gone extrajudicial? Drone strikes, mercenary missions and the assassination of Bin Laden raise the question: Do the ends justify the means?
