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? Going beneath the surface of conventional reporting, investigative journalist Scahill’s newest book, Dirty Wars, explores the gray areas of U.S. military operations to determine whether these policies have been undertaken with congressional oversight and public debate. Hear Scahill’s take on the underbelly of the United States’ international military affairs and decide for yourself if you agree with him: How much are we willing to compromise the democratic process in the name of warfare, and justice?
