Curt Wechsler, The World Can't Wait: January 2019 Archives

Here's one for the Duh files, writes Ed Brayton for patheos.com:

John Yoo, principal author of the infamous torture memos that authorized waterboarding and worse in the Bush administration, says that if Trump declared a state of emergency over Mexican border immigration, that would be perfectly constitutional.

..this is the man who says the president has the legal authority to order a child's testicles crushed in order to get information from their father (yes, that's actually his position)... but that can't just mean that anything he says is an emergency actually is one.

January 11, 2019, marks the 17th anniversary of the opening of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, which was established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. It also marks the start of the prison's third year under the direction of the Trump administration. At the beginning of the Trump administration 41 people remained imprisoned at Guantanamo. Over the last two years, the Trump administration has released just one individual, leaving 40 people in detention while, at times, signaling interest in expanding Guantanamo. What will happen to the prison and its detainees in the remaining years of the Trump administration? Will anyone else be released? Will the prison ever close?

Join New America's International Security Program as they welcome Laura Pitter, Thomas B. Wilner and Andy Worthington for a discussion about what is next for the prison.
