Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday)


In This segment, WMNF's Rob Lorei interviewed JOHN QUIGLEY.


Professor of law at Ohio State University, Quigley is author of numerous books including "The Ruses for War: American Interventionism Since World War II." He said today: "In the Authorization for Use of Military Force (2002), Congress contemplated military force only to protect the United States against Iraq, and the weaponry it supposedly had. If President Bush wants to send more troops, he is subject to the War Powers Resolution, which allows him to commit troops for only 60 days without an authorizing resolution from Congress. Even apart from that 60-day grace period, the War Powers Resolution lets Congress at any time by resolution direct the President to bring troops out of a conflict. So if Congress wants to mandate a draw-down of troops, it has the power to do so."

Quigley discussed the troop surge, the possible widening of the current conflict to Iran and Syria, torture, domestic spying and the comparisons between the the crimes of Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and the alleged crimes of George Bush.
