Justice After Bush: Forum at Princeton

Justice After Bush: Should Former Administration Officials be Prosecuted? A Public Forum on
Tuesday, March 10, 2009, 4:30 PM, Computer Science 104, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey

After September 11, the Bush Administration engaged in legally questionable actions, from the detention and apparent torture of terrorist suspects to the warrantless wiretapping of domestic phones. The underlying policies – and the allegations that they were illegal – have presented the new administration with complex questions of law and challenges of policy. A growing number of influential commentators and congressional leaders are now calling for investigations and possibly criminal prosecutions of Bush Administration officials who played a role in these activities. In this panel, a politically diverse group of speakers will consider what should happen to these allegations of illegality, as the country seeks “justice after Bush.”
