I was previously a constitutional law and civil rights litigator and am now a journalist. I am the author of three New York Times bestselling books -- "How Would a Patriot Act" (a critique of Bush executive power theories), "Tragic Legacy" (documenting the Bush legacy), and With Liberty and Justice for Some (critiquing America's two-tiered justice system and the collapse of the rule of law for its political and financial elites). My fifth book - No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the US Surveillance State - will be released on April 29, 2014 by Holt/Metropolitan.

Posting today

I will be posting today at Crooks & Liars and will post the links here when they are ready. The first post concerns this rather typical column from Bill Kristol in The Weekly Standard, his most overt call yet to wage war on Iran -- and quickly.

Iran, of course, is Nazi Germany. Its leaders are Adolph Hitler. And we are France & England in 1936, faced with the only historical choice people like Kristol are capable of understanding -- we either wage glorious battle and take our rightful place beside the noble Winston Churchill, or we shrink away from our grand historical calling and are instantaneously transformed into the lowly coward, Neville Chamberlain.

They see every event and every conflict through this one single historical event, and it's truly amazing that our country has been led for the last five years by this most simplistic and stunted understanding of the world.
