Empire: of Secrets‏

Empire: of Secrets‏

 

From Alexandra

As revelations of systemic snooping continue to hit the headlines, Empire asks: who is watching the watchers?

Joining us as we unpack some of the known unknowns are Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, and war reporters Jeremy Scahill and Richard Rowley. We unravel the psychology of secrets with psychiatrist Justin Frank, the author of ‘Obama on the Couch‘ and ‘Bush on the Couch‘.

We look at the impact of state secrets brought to light with Dana Priest, a leading Washington Post investigative reporter on national security and author of two books, including her most recent ‘Top Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State‘. We are also joined by Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights, as well as Evgeny Morozov, an expert on internet and privacy issues, and author of two books.

American Court Refuses To Recognize Jerusalem As A Part Of Israel!*

Life on the wrong side of the Israeli wall...On Tuesday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that Americans born in Jerusalem cannot put “Israel” as place of birth on their birth certificates.

Judge Karen Henderson wrote that the president “exclusively holds the power to determine whether to recognize a foreign sovereign,” and that the president had not recognized Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.

Congress passed a law in 2002 dictating that Americans living in Jerusalem could label their children’s birthplace “Israel,” but the State Department has refused to enforce that law for over a decade.

Over 50,000 Americans have been born in Jerusalem when Palestinians have n recognition in their own land.


The Obama administration has consistently refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli territory, let alone as the capital of Israel. The Democratic National Convention platform controversially removed language regarding Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem before replacing it last-minute in a voice vote.
