WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

Last week, we aired the first part of an interview with Larry Velvel, dean of the Massachusetts School of Law.

Velvel is chair of the Steering Committee of the Justice Robert H. Jackson Conference on Planning for the Prosecution of High Level American War Criminals, a group that is preparing a complaint they will give to the Department of Justice in the hopes of prosecuting more than thirty members of the Bush administration for war crimes, including torture.

WMNF began the second part of the interview by asking Velvel why the group is named after Justice Robert H. Jackson.

“Robert Jackson is one of the great Supreme Court Justices of American history. ...

“If [President Bush] wants to abduct and murder people, no laws can stop him. That’s why I say this was an attempted Constitutional revolution, which I consider a treason to the United States Constitution, frankly.”
