Prosecutor Calls to Impeach Obama

An Interview with Professor Francis Boyle

Just two weeks ago, President Obama stood up before the American people and told Congress that he has all the power he needs to violate the Constitution and actively undermine another sovereign government. Sparked by the reaction to multiple ISIS beheading videos, the American public and both branches of Congress supported Obama in his move to arm and train Syrian rebels in their fight against the Islamic State and their ongoing civil war against President Bashar al-Assad.

Invoking the same AUMF powers as former President George W Bush, Obama is now leading the military campaign against terrorism. And the snowball could get even bigger. Egyptian leaders are urging Obama to take his fight into other countries as well. With the combat zones inching closer and closer to Turkey’s southern border, Arab leaders all over the Middle East are watching carefully to see how the battle plays out.

Today, we welcome a regular guest back to the broadcast. Political Science professor Francis Boyle was one of the prosecutors during the War Crimes Commission trial of George W Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in Kuala Lumpur two years ago. Professor Boyle also teaches international law at the University of Illinois School of Law.
