Nader Takes on Koh at Yale Law School

Flyers began popping up on the Yale Law School campus yesterday asking the question: Will Koh Show?

Koh as in Yale Law School professor and former Obama administration legal advisor Harold Koh.

The same Koh who Ralph Nader said “provided cover for Obama’s ‘drone ranger’ John Brennan, Obama’s counterterrorism advisor.

 “Brennan gave the president weekly opportunities — White House aides called decision day “Terror Tuesdays” — to become secret prosecutor, judge, jury, and executioner. Imagine thousands of push-button deaths and injuries of internal resisters and civilian bystanders in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and elsewhere who presented no threat to the U.S,” Nader wrote in a column last year.

The flyers were put up to announce an event featuring Nader, Jesselyn Radack, Bruce Fein and Edgar Cahn in a discussion titled: “Showdown for Democracy: Obama’s Prosecution of Whistleblowers, Lawyers, and the National Security State.”

The event is at Yale Law School April 1 from 4-7 pm in the Sterling Law Building (Rm. 120).

The event is the first of its kind involving high-profile legal critics of the Obama administration’s policies on whistleblowers.

Radack (YLS ’95) is legal counsel for Edward Snowden and a former Department of Justice official.

Fein is a prominent critic of the national security state and former Reagan administration official.

Cahn (YLS ’63) was a founder of Antioch Law School and is now a voice for progressive change in the legal profession.

The event is free and open to the public and audience questions will be taken at the end of the discussion.

Sponsors include the American Constitution Society, Debating Taboos Collective, Global Justice Program, and Shake ‘Em Up Yale Law School.
