‘Left, Right & Center’: Drones and the Saturday Mail Shocker

Posted on Feb 8, 2013

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss the war over drones that has erupted during confirmation hearings for John Brennan as CIA director. Should the president be allowed to use unmanned drones to execute a U.S. citizen overseas without due process or judicial review? Will this question become President Obama’s Guantanamo? What should the international norms of behavior be as more countries acquire this technology?

Also, the Republican Party tries to redefine itself amid deepening effects of the recession, and the U.S. Postal Service announces its intention to drop Saturday delivery. Will Obama talk about unemployment in Tuesday’s State of the Union? He skipped the topic altogether in his inaugural address. Finally, thoughts on how to make higher education more accessible. Is going online the answer?

Joining Scheer and host Matt Miller on this week’s show are Byron York and Chrystia Freeland.
