FDL Cutting Room Roundup: Saturday Evening Video

Our team gathered some great video we didn’t put through with other featured articles this week, but they’re too good to let go by. Here’s a second chance for a couple of videos we couldn’t squeeze into our front page line up.

First up: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow at CPAC this week — heck, just saying that much tells you this is going to be a good one. But here’s a teaser — Rachel and Liz Cheney, in the flesh, in the same frame.

Next up: Jonathan Turley appeared on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann to discuss the U.S. Department of Justice OPR report. The Office of Professional Responsibility found that Bush Administration attorneys John Yoo and Jay Bybee were not guilty of misconduct, only bad judgment in their legal work supporting the use of torture on detainees as part of euphemistically labeled “enhanced interrogation techniques.”

Turley, a professor of law at George Washington University who speaks frequently about constitutional and statutory law, smacks down the notion of bad judgment and points to the Nuremberg trials and the special responsibility which attorneys have in counseling clients at risk of committing war crimes in violation of the Geneva Convention.

What other video have you seen this week which might be of interest to the rest of the community? Please share in comments — and no, we’ve seen quite enough of Tiger Woods this week, thank you.
