Scott Horton Interviews Will Grigg
Will Grigg, blogger and author of Liberty in Eclipse, discusses Obama’s decision to get a UN Security Council declaration of war on Libya – and further marginalize Congress’s exclusive war-making authority; how the United Nations Participation Act, signed by President Truman in 1945, directly challenges the authority of the US Constitution; why the UN is less a peacekeeping organization than a means of consolidating power and applying it against enemies of the “international community;” why bilateral talks work better than UN diplomacy; the hierarchy of authority with regard to international treaties and domestic federal and state laws; and how broad-based legislation like the PATRIOT Act and TARP are quickly used in ways that far exceed their mandates.
