Description

The Intercept’s Trevor Aaronson joins the show to talk about the travesty of justice in the trial of Hamid Hayat, who has finally been released after nearly 15 years in prison. Hayat was an alleged terrorist, convicted based on a coerced confession he gave to FBI agents under duress, as well as recordings from his conversations with an FBI informant who had pretended to befriend Hayat’s family. Hayat is just one of many such cases of U.S. government entrapment, which make up the majority of supposed terrorism prosecutions.
Discussed on the show:
“Reporters Questioned His Terror Prosecution. Now He’s Free.” (The Intercept)
“The Confession Tapes” (Netflix)
“Lodi Man Describes Terrorist Training” (LA Times)
“US-led coalition ‘killed 1,600 civilians’ in Syria’s Raqqa” (Al Jazeera)
Trevor Aaronson is a contributing writer for The Intercept and executive director of the nonprofit Florida Center for Investigative Reporting. He is the author of The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism. Find him on Twitter @trevoraaronson.

  •   Wow these scammers are really stepping it up a notch. I hope this undermines confidence in government.

  • This evening, FBI Director James Comey is giving the keynote speech at “The Expectation of Privacy: Encryption, Surveillance and Big Data” conference at a local college.  I am planning on attending. I do not know if the audience will be allowed to ask him questions or not.  If there is a Q&A, does anyone have any ideas for good questions to ask him.
