Habeas Corpus, the Constitution, and the NDAA

The attached interview is with Chris Hedges, former New York Times reporter and plaintiff in the Hedges v. Obama (2012) lawsuit that seeks to challenge portions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012, the provisions that disregard constitutional protections of writs of habeas corpus in particular.  While I do not agree with everything Mr. Hedges or the interviewer has to say on every point, this interview is nonetheless worth watching in full and the act’s constitutional ramifications cannot go ignored.
