Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes international lawyer Philippe Sands for a discussion of Bush administration policies regarding international law. Sands analyzes the evolution of international law from the Atlantic Charter to the present drawing on research in his two books, "Lawless World," and "Torture Team: Rumsfeld's Memo and the Betrayal of American Values." He concludes that war crimes may have been committed after 911 and that key players in the administration are subject to charges not only in the court of world opinion but also in tribunals invoking universal jurisdiction.
