First interview Marcy Wheeler

Blogger Marcy Wheeler discusses The Guardian‘s NSA files and Glenn Greenwald’s thousands of still-unreleased documents from NSA whistleblower Eric Snowden; government surveillance at the packet, metadata and content levels; how Section 215 of the Patriot Act skirts existing privacy laws; and why this unprecedented information gathering will have very little impact on preventing terrorism.

Second interview Chase Madar

New York civil rights attorney Chase Madar discusses the first four weeks of Bradley Manning’s military trial; legal arguments about whether Manning’s leaked information was “closely held” or not; the government’s attempt to show Manning as a pawn of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, not a whistleblower responding to a crisis of conscience; and why – despite the prosecution’s weak evidence so far – we should expect a harsh sentence from the military judge.
