Scott Horton Interviews V. Noah Gimbel
V. Noah Gimbel, an intern with Foreign Policy In Focus, discusses his article “Has the Rendition Program Disappeared” in FPIF; how Obama’s total unwillingness to prosecute Bush officials shows his disdain for the rule of law and embrace of torture; why JSOC is even less accountable than the CIA; how “extraordinary rendition” has become “rendition to justice,” a relic of the war on drugs now used against bribery suspects; and Obama’s huge increase in drone strike assassinations (with civilians the most common casualties) that in many ways are worse than rendition.
