[The following is an email exchange between writer Glenn Greenwald and Professor Alan Dershowitz.

Obama's Drone Leaks: New Imminence, Old Tactics

[A Predator drone akin to those in service over Yemen, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Image by Ryo Chijiiwa.]

The Senate Armed Services Committee did not mention drones a single time during Senator Chuck Hagel's confirmation hearings last week. That oversight, however, says a lot more about the politics surrounding the hearings than it does about the enduring salience of drone technology to US national security policy. The Department of Justice's "white paper" obtained by NBC on Monday affirms that. The paper, drafted for some members of Congress and a less detailed analysis than the official, still unreleased, legal memo, provides the most robust legal analysis of the Obama administration's targeted killing policy to date. Although it ...

Zaha Hadid: Black Square, White Cube, and the Twenty-First Century Museum

The staircase of Zaha Hadid Architects’ recently opened Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University in East Lansing is sleek and straightforward. Its intention is functional; its design is simple (as simple as a contorted, suspended mass can be). A departure from the use of a traditional grand stairway as a means of announcing the authority of an American cultural institution, its narrow path cuts through three distinct levels of sensory experience, as each floor of the museum has been configured to showcase a varied permanent collection.   Positioned as the building’s spine, the birch and black staircase urges visitors to follow the dynamic energy ...

This morning, news slowly trickled in through national and international media following reports of Chokri Belaid's assassination. Initial reports claimed Belaid died from two bullets to the head outside his home in Tunis, but medical reports followed up and clarified that there were four, not two. Immediately after news of his assassination surfaced, Tunisians mobilized across Tunis, with marches heading towards the Ministry of Interior and marches following the path of Belaid's ambulance. Police responded with tear gas and warning shots near the Ministry of Interior. Chokri Belaid was a prominent leftist politician, secretary general of the Democratic Patriotic Party ...

Mohamed Morsi Mubarak: The Myth of Egypt's Democratic Transition

Two years ago today, Egyptians celebrated their toppling of President Hosni Mubarak and looked ahead to a future of change. Yet the second anniversary of Mubarak’s departure has been marked by further demonstrations, bloodshed, and new scenes of extreme state violence. Amid the now-routine use of tear gas and live fire on protests nationwide, there was the incredible footage of the repeated beating and violation of a citizen stripped naked by a gang of policemen in riot gear, and the death by brutal ...

قراءة في رواية "موظف عادي جداً" لـ فينشيزو تشيرامي

قد تكون رواية "موظف عادي جدا"، مجرد خلية مجهرية، مستأصلة من نسيج مجتمع إيطالي في مرحلة ما من القرن المنصرم. وقد لا تعني الكثير لقارئ عربي، يخوض نزاعاته الشخصية، إذا صح القول، بعيداً عن رومانسية الثقافة، ووفقاً لما تقتضيه فلسفة البقاء، وتعزيز شروط الأنا، ودفعها باتجاه الأعلى. من هنا، يبرز إلى الواقع، مجتمع ملون بشتى أطياف العنف، كسمة تدبغ سلوك الكثيرين، وتبين مدى التأثير من خلال طريقة الكلام، أو الفعل، الفردي أو الجماعي كأداة وحيدة لتحصيل الحق. يتبين في مقابل ذلك، مدى الضرر الذي تصاب به شرائح ...

Lawfare and Armed Conflict: Comparing Israeli and US Targeted Killing Policies and Challenges against Them

In this public lecture, I engage the concept of lawfare (an amalgamation of “law” and “warfare”) to compare Israeli and US twenty-first century armed conflicts. Specifically, I focus on both states’ targeted killing policies and the legal rationales that have been advanced to try to project their lawfulness, and legal challenges to these policies in order to tell a larger story about the relationship between contemporary practices of law and war. In order to tell this story, I expand the lawfare concept ...

Tires over Tyre: US Ambassador Ruins Ruins

Touring Tyre on foot can be tiring, to be sure. But whether US Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly was too tired or too busy to get out of her car to survey these marvelous vestiges of antiquity, nothing excuses her regrettable decision to drive a convoy of vehicles over this ancient site, damaging a stone wall in the process. Ambassador Connelly’s convoy passed near the golden Roman Triumphal Arch through a narrow dirt path that is not designed for cars. Unfortunately, one of the cars in her convoy ...

National Students for Justice in Palestine Stands in Solidarity with Brooklyn College
