This week on “Left, Right & Center,” attacks against Islamic State in Syria continue and the British Parliament votes to support them. Panelist Rich Lowry of the National Review notes that “there’s an irony in a monarchy having this debate in a way we aren’t having in our country.” Host Matt Miller recommends an article by Yale legal scholar Bruce Ackerman, criticizing the legal justification given by the Obama administration. Panelist Robert Scheer, Truthdig’s editor-in-chief, says “it’s an act of profound stupidity.” The group considers President Obama’s speech at the United Nations Climate Summit and criticizes soon-to-depart Attorney General Eric Holder. Scheer says he was an enormous disappointment, and Lowry calls him a political hack. “This American Life” and ProPublica go deep inside Goldman Sachs with a bank examiner from the New York Federal Reserve. Scheer says the information revealed “will lead to the biggest expose of government and Wall Street corruption in American history.”
