tv Interview with Ronald Goldfarb CSPAN January 3, 2016 1:30am-1:46am EST
>> guest: the impact of edward snowden is extraordinary in a couple years of his revelation made public, the world has changed and a way that never would have happened if he didn't if you believe he is an angel or double, you cannot deny the fact that courts have ruled the procedures that he questioned were illegal and unconstitutional. the white house had 36
different changes as a result of his disclosure the european union just passed a resolution that he should not be extradited and the major social the works of microsoft and google have changed practices because it turns out they lost $40 billion when the disclosures became public to see those who use the bat so there is no question that has changed in dramatic ways. >> i you recently had john brennan say to be him strong but us cia is called to
account with a national security is endangered it isn't cartop launch but nobody was uttered argue to be especially in dangerous times to the dutiful and what they do in their name. to save the constitution is not a suicide pact but that does not mean anything goes after world war ii that was considered the great war with tens of thousands of american lives we have come
back to a question what we did such as the internment of japanese citizens. now in the wake of 9/11 but is the kidnapping and torturing of suspects. so we take the position to strike an exquisite balance. the net pendulum will swing, it should we give is in competition in with another and though always change from time to time. if to say we want national security protectors to
insure domestic tranquility. i know the most americans would condone that. so what do they want that they don't already have. >> host: in the history of the united states with national security act and domestic terrorism clash with people's civil liberties that is human nature. we are very attuned this week considering paris. that is naive to the you
don't want the police to take every measure to insure that those perpetrators are caught in the powers that be he do everything they can to see it is not repeated. >> to find ourselves not in a democratic state there is always a question of balance. but to say it is a ticking bomb. that everything is then in secret. in the heart of the democratic government and what we have seen in the wake of 9/11 they did not
mean total x-rays but let the issues and we have six world-class students contributed invaluable chapters to those questions. he was supposed to be here but health reasons he could not come to the fair bet he was a onetime editor in mississippi also the carter administration to project information to the public and with the state department and the gain to
withhold those instances that cannot be made public. >> to bring a balanced and probing perspective. so as a columnist for the "miami herald" to write a chapter on whistle-blowers 2.0 in the case of edward snowden he tear disinformation over to three people. one who had an oscar for her documentary on this subject 12 though "washington post" in one to "the guardian" they won pulitzer prize but edward snowden who is the source has been indicted for espionage. there is a disconnected their.
and with the political ideology. and those you were worried about a massive famine. so initially the skepticism perhaps they are wrong now. so to attend climate change meetings i have read deeply in of literature to suggest it could become a significant problem. >> is there a solution? >> yes. that they will have to transform into fewer fossil fuels.
