Harvard Law School Professor Jack Goldsmith appeared on the Mar. 12 edition of NPR’s “On Point with Tom Ashbrook” alongside ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero. The two addressed the controversy over Attorney General Eric Holder’s recent remarks at Northwestern University Law School in which he defended the legality of the Obama administration’s use of targeted killings of Americans suspected of terrorism-related activity.
Goldsmith, who is the Henry L. Shattuck Professor of Law at HLS, served as assistant attorney general in the Bush Administration. He is the author of “Power and Constraint: The Accountable Presidency After 9/11” (W.W. Norton & Company, 2012) and “The Terror Presidency: Law and Judgment Inside the Bush Administration” (W.W. Norton & Company, 2007).
