Obama's Drone Hit List, Dishonoring Veterans, Prosecuting Hactivists

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to Marjorie Cohn, professor of Human Rights at Thomas Jefferson School of Law about Obama's pre-conditions for drone use, his Orwellian counter-terrorism speech, and the most recent updates on Gitmo. Abby then goes over the importance of the Memorial Day holiday, and highlights how US military families are among the most affected by the federal budget cuts known as the 'sequester'. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Abi Hassen, mass defense coordinator for the National Lawyers Guild, about the case of Jeremy Hammond, his plea deal, and its larger implications on freedom of information and online activism.

In relation to the first segment, US foreign policy seems designed to encourage war and conflict. Must see first part to this episode.

Obama must be put on trial for committing War Crimes (and has criminally failed to prosecute those of the Bush Administration).
