10:32 am
now you obviously have an extremely diverse biography hated by so romanticized by others from being on the f.b.i.'s top ten most wanted list to now being a law professor and dealing with children's rights which one of these stages serves your purposes the most i don't think of them is that distinct i feel like i've been obsessed with a couple of things my whole life certainly the question of justice and certainly he swore in peace you obviously throughout your career have received so much criticism of. your kitties and actions were very radical that this group the weather underground. did some things that were you know later do you terrorist and you say this entire time that you were really fighting for peace we've become used to really since nine eleven as an example of american terrorism but we were never terrorists in fact i think the whole. war and
10:33 am
black freedom movement in the united states were militant had militant edges but really were always restrained and if you look around the world at the time we in fact were tactically very restrained our rhetoric was sometimes a little inflamed and hyperbolic but our actions really were quite restrained. in that revolution and insurgency takes is constantly changing we just saw the mideast uprising kind of a mansion back before it happened when those events broke out a lot of people in the united states were. sort of fearful that the same could happen here on that kind of scale do you think that's possible of course it's possible and you know we grown up in an era of american exceptionalism right last seventy years where the united states somehow isn't bound by the other lies of history and of course we are bound by the loss of history militarily the united
10:34 am
states is obviously still in full swing with iraq afghanistan libya military power still what do you make of that and what do you make of these particular wars and also what the peace movement where is it all this is there a lot of sniping at that well i think that the u.s. economic down and spoke with globally hundred seventy four military bases you know all but three five wars three shadow wars i think that it's you know a great danger to the world i think that the militarization at home is also quite significant since nine eleven and the and raveling of all of the theories of the sixty's whereas the peace movement i think that you mainly see the peace movement in the veterans coming home and i'm not sure why that is i think that people oppose the war there's no question that the american people oppose the iraq war continue to oppose it and think we should lead they oppose the escalation in afghanistan they supported it you know the day after nine eleven and have opposed it ever since
10:35 am
and and they already oppose the libya and so i think the american people are not in a funny way are the peace movement right they haven't been able to change the tremendous military control of this democracy so we haven't been able to stop the wars but i don't want you to i don't think we should minimize how much the american people don't like these wars and then i think the second major force people i work with are the veterans coming home because as in vietnam and. as in every war they come home and see the truth about what they've been asked to do and i think this current glorification of the troops can't hide the reality of what happens when these young kids women and men come home and they are the real truth tellers but us imperialism we've touched upon a little bit yourself as well as quite a significant number of other people believe that the u.s.
10:36 am
power is dying down both politically and interaction with other countries economically where does it really stand now realistically well i think that it's destroying itself american hegemony is no longer to be we have too many rising other economic and cultural powers in the world i think that gives us here in the united states tremendous opportunity as well as a tremendous risk the risk of course is we've seen other countries other empires decline but where their military state is very strong and that is a tremendous danger and you can turn everything into a military opportunity instead of as a social and human opportunity do you think that. that decline economy is also like a very significant large contributor to the fact that the united states is losing its power abroad just the fact that so many people here are struggling and are not contributing to the economy or the country as a strong force the tremendous acceleration of that gap of income in the united
10:37 am
states in the last decade says it all yes most of us are getting poorer i kind a handful less than one percent of the population are getting extravagantly wealthy but you know you look from nine eleven till today and you say you know yes but the people who perpetrated the tragedy of nine eleven to justice there are many ways to do that. right the front of an international tribunal you could have had a police action but war. millions of people being displaced separations of countries accusations of three countries to prison for in the united states many were appropriate and it certainly has imposed a tragedy and that's just one of the latest developments to the war in terrors of course the death of bin laden i want to ask you as a law professor under what legal basis was that committed by the united states i
10:38 am
heard a legal commentator yesterday on the radio when i was driving home and i was laughing out loud because. he claimed that under the u.n. charter the grade of self-defense was in operation here so defense yes maybe after nine eleven the operation that was carried out against this terrorist cell would have been justified under international law ten years later you know invade another country with your military and let them do it. on the other hand we could take this moment i think as an opportunity for peace really ok now it's time to declare an end to these wars which came at least a rationalization by u.s. presidents was to you know to prevent nine eleven from happening again why don't we see this is a moment to withdraw from afghanistan and iraq just for do you think that's
10:39 am
possible or is it also possible that this could this moment could be taken as an extra opportunity to really intensify efforts in afghanistan well of afghanistan's not going to go well no matter how you define going well it is not possible to win these wars whatever that means and everybody knows that but the lamb is you can hear the drumbeat now for pakistan you know against pakistan and there's always going to be a ran there's always available for the military aggressors seem to dominate you know we've seen the united states. people want an end to these wars they voted for the current president as a peace kennedy and now we've got two more wars so let's have an end to this this this the death of bin laden should be a moment where we can say yes now withdraw american withdrawal from iraq a patient what are the chances of that really well i don't we don't know until we
10:40 am
do we insist on doing we don't know until we insist on it and i think it's our only hope was be militarizing the entire american economy so was that result your patience going on because politicians look beyond confucians i think that they serve the interests of you know. the late empire of capitalism if you will there about oil you can't say well we didn't intervene in bahrain but we did intervene in libya why. and you had there's reasons why it will stay under it was very technical standards of course that will stand it's we have the fifth fleet and bahrain libya has oil and is near to europe and has no air defense system yeah there were very practical reasons why we pick and choose to declare a state of war on the us government is sort of genes you were on the top ten most wanted fugitives list and you were known to say that the real terrorist is the us
10:41 am
government yes i do you still maintain these sorts of statements i think we were rebellions i think that we were. we were dissidents american dissidents in the classic tradition. you know we were we thought it was possible to join the global struggle of revolutionary war at that moment in the sixty's so i understand how we thought about it then. i think now as many old people do that the war metaphor is just so terrible it's just so carol that inflicts so much suffering on everyone. that i wish we had kind of kept the rebel. rebellion metaphor instead of war and metaphor but the other things that we said and i stand by them about the u.s. government being terrorists i didn't come that long ago from what i read this was only in ninety three so just you know decade ago do you still believe i do believe
10:42 am
that i think you know bombing from the air in order to save people is a terrible idea and goes bad people don't like it was it terrorism it usually is terrorism because it's killing civilians. i think that you can call it you know a message of. war to free people but i think that of course you know the wars and wars of empire of always been wrapped in. paper and ribbons of democracy and bringing education and freedom to people terrorism when you yes i mean civilian populations occupying land to make sure i understand correctly in this war on terror the u.s. is also a terrorist is that what you mean that is what i mean i think if you look at the terrorist act of nine eleven. which created tremendous suffering and hardship here
10:43 am
and around the world i mean it wasn't just americans who died in the world trade center and moderns activities certainly made. thousands and millions of arabs and muslims suffered as well for doing dorn thank you so much for your time with us today. from the. cultures that so much of the taxpayers' money but maybe you would like to have a real mystery as to what do we mean to use the word quest is it a place a state of mind or even a specific time in history also. wealthy british soil. sometimes the tireless money.
