erfect union. >> i'm going to quote the world only spins forward. you have to keep fighting more progress. >> cenk: and shana fought not only for herds but all americans because civil rights aren't just for minorities, it's for every american. thank you, shana. everybody else, bye bye!

5:01 pm
woman who is younger than them. happy birthday. and today is july 1st. the year is half over. halfhappy half sunday. this is few point. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: good evening, i'm john fugelsang and this is "viewpoint"." thankthaw so much for joining us tonight. after eight days in in a moscow airport, he's looking for a country that will give him asylum. snowden allegedly published a letter on the wikileaks site.
5:02 pm
in sans knee i can't president obama said that the u.s. was still going through regular channels to get snowden brought back proportion. >> there have been high level discussions with the russians about trying to find a solution to the problem. we are hopeful that the russian government makes decisions based on normal procedures regarding international travel and normal intersections that law enforcement has. >> last night russian officials said snowed den's asylum request could take a month to process and that an answer wasn't forthcoming yet. for his part, russian president vladimir putin said today that snowden could leave moscow airport's transit area if he could find another country that would take him in. or snowden could stay in russian so long as he abided by one condition, and i quote that he
5:03 pm
must cease his work aimed at inflicting damage to our american partners as strange as that may sound from my lips. according to guardian, snowden says the nsa is monitor communications from 38 diplomatic posts in washington and new york including, the french italian, greek, indian, mexican japanese embassyies in which all those countries said, no way, you don't say. he wants to know what european leaders are thinking? >> i'm the end user of this kind of intelligence. if i want to know what chancellor merkel is thinking, i will call chancellor merkel. >> john: and check the transcripts to make sure it all
5:04 pm
adds up. i'm pleased to welcome to our show mr. james bamford whose latest book is "the shadow factory: the ultra secret nsa from 9/11 to the eavesdropping on america." and general keith articles his recent article is entitled "the secret war." mr. snowden reportedly apply for political asigh yum in russia. is that the nsa's biggest nightmare short of his applying for a summer home in beijing? >> i think it is and i think the reason why putin decided to put one of the conditions that he not report any more on his documents and so forth was a very good reason. for a spy who was what putin used to be, and that's what you
5:05 pm
want are the secrets for yourself. you don't want the chinese to know what snowden has. you need them for yourself, and you need nobody else to know what that information is. plus, he might have stuff that the nsa doesn't know. so the more he keeps that information to himself to just between he and putin and the russian government, the better it is, i think for putin. >> john: i think you're right. were you surprised by mr. putin's defense of america? did it seem that he was having it post both ways, taking advantage of snowden. >> it was a perfect two-fer. you get to look good in front of the american people, and you get to keep the secrets at the same time, and not let the chinese to get the secrets. for mr. putin it seems like a no-loss gain. >> john: well, some critics, as
5:06 pm
you know, say mr. snowden is a felon. others include speaker boehner an feinstein call him a traitor. the man who leaked the papers call him a whistle blower. at this point in this long process how do you evaluate what mr. snowden is doing? >> by leaking the fact that the nsa is secretly gathering everybody's phone records on a daily basis millions and millions of innocent people data mining them and storing them without anybody's knowledge, that certainly is classified as a whistle blower. he gave away a lot of information that is useful to the american public, and not very useful to the russians or anybody else. so definitely whistle blower. that is as of the day that he gave away information on the u.s. what happens after that is a different call, and we have yet to see what is going to happen. right now he's stuck in limbo in
5:07 pm
the moscow airport, and you know who knows where he's going to go from here. he may stay in russia. he may go to ecuador iceland who knows. you have to take it on a day-to-day basis. >> john: indeed, while we're talking about him we're not talking about the nsa and that seems to be what the media is doing. what is snowden's ability to get his hands on that much classified information say about the nsa's vetting program. he said he has planned his leaks for least a year and took a pay cut to get access to more information. >> right, but if you look at reports of his e-mails chats or various internet chat groups he was in several years ago when somebody asked him about leakers, he said that they should be shot, something like that. you know, he joined the army or the military at first, then he joined the c.i.a. and then he
5:08 pm
went and become a contractor for the nsa and so forth. this is a gradual shift. it's not as if he joined in order to steal secrets. i think what happens you join for one reason, a patriotic reason, and then you see things that you don't think should be going on. then you become a whistle blower. >> john: are you surprised he was able to access as much of material in that job that he did? >> well, i was surprised but then as you read the job description, then you become less surprised because he there was a quote from the 60s that he walked around with all the keys hanging around his belt. he is the guy with all the digital keys on his belt. he had to jump over different walls to connect the different parts of the agency. and if you're jumping over
5:09 pm
different walls and you have keys to other parts of the agency, then you have access to a lot more secrets than most people do. >> john: well, last week when he was in china, of course, we heard about him offering information about america's cyberattacks on the chinese. if the case is, sir that he was offering specific secrets to china in exchange for asylum, does that completely under cut his standing as a principled whistle blower? >> well, it doesn't under cut his standing as an american whistle blower. but i think what you got here is an interesting shift here in the the 2000s in terms of whistle blowing. more whistle blowing is becoming internationalizeed or globalized. so you're not just blowing the whistle to help the citizens of the united states, but you're blowing the whistle to help citizens of the world. i think that's what his attitude
5:10 pm
is. the other thing is the hypocrisy that he was going after there is hardly a day that went by when he was with the pentagon, white house, nsa when somebody wasn't complaining about how the chinese were hacking into american circuits and so forth and stealing information. when all along the u.s. had i think basically a far more aggressive operation going than what the chinese have against us. we have a whole cybercommand that is using cyberto destroy things which is the center fuges. >> john: and i'm sure that neither side was surprised by these revelations but i want to move on to your latest articles where you write about the current nsa director general keith alexander.
5:11 pm
where does alexander stand in the spell against hierarchy and what changes has he overseen in the nsa since he took command. >> i've never seen anyone ride so high in the intelligence community before. i think general alexander the head of nsa's most powerful person in the haste history of american intelligence, and the reason for that is because he not only controls the biggest intelligence and most secret intelligence agency in the nsa. he now has been elevated to the highest rank in the military, a four-star general and he's in charge of a new command, a very vietnam.secret command. and under that command he could launch a war, a cyberwar to get
5:12 pm
into a regular fighting war. in addition to that he's got now three branches of the military under him. he's got the second army, the 24th air force and the 10th navy fleet. this is the most powerful person in the history of the american intelligence community. as you mentioned most people would never recognize his face or his name if he walked down pennsylvania avenue in front of the white house. >> john: it's amazing. are there any real legal limits at this point on the nsa's ability to collect information on american citizens? has privacy in real terms disappeared? >> i think so, really. i think it's pretty much vanished to a large degree. once you get digitalization, and once you have an agency that has so much money so much power it's almost impossible to create a lifestyle where you're completely eliminated from this
5:13 pm
type of watching or eavesdropping. nsa has enormous powers to eavesdrop, as we've just seen. they're collecting everybody's telephone records every day and the laws are very weak. the president said they're watched over by the courts and congress. well, the congress is more interested in preventing budget cuts to nsa rather than preventing encroachment of privacy on citizens. and it's a totally secret court. it never produces anything. it's like a black hole. everything goes in, nothing comes out. only one party can appear before it. in addition to that, the original concept of the court was completely weakened if not thrown out when they created the
5:14 pm
foreign intelligence amendment act in 2008. still, there isn't much oversight of the nsa. >> john: that leads me to this next question, as you know, sir polls show despite everything we're talking about the majority of americans don't seem to mind the nsa collecting their private communication and holding onto them indefinitely. what do you think it would take to change that? >> well, i'm not a psychologist, i'm just a writer. i don't know what it would take to change it, but i do agree that that's a major problem. you know, if you let your rights slip by the way side a lot of times it's very, very hard to get them back. you can spend your time watching "dancing with the stars," zoning out in front of the tube watching football. that's very nice, but if you don't pay attention to what's going on in the country or the world, then you're responsible for having all these rights slip
5:15 pm
away. >> john: well, let me ask you one last question then director of national intelligence james clapper lied under oath about nsa spying. are you surpriseed that snowden's facing prosecution and clapper's not even in the media? >> i'm not surprised but i am disappointed obviously. we keep letting people who break laws that the government likes or is part of the government off. we saw that all during the bush administration. the people who lied to get us into wars where thousands and thousands of americans were killed and nothing ever happened. there wasn't even a hearing on all of this. all of the laws against giving data to the government without a warrant, they violated that, and congress granted them not only immuneity from prosecution, but
5:16 pm
immunity from lawsuit. yes, then obviously with james clapper and so forth lying about whether the government was keeping surveillance on americans. so that's another major problem in the country i think the fact that we go after the people who are sort of the small fry people who are leaking these things for largely--not for self-serving reasons. we let go of the people who create wars and create havoc in the united states. >> john: well, we thank you for carryingcaring about it, and thank you for writing what you write. james bamford, his latest book "the shadow factory." thank you for joining us.
5:17 pm
>> thank you.

5:20 pm
>> john: it's just been a year since crowds cheered egypt's first cremecally elected leader mohamed morsi at his inauguration, but protesters have returned to tahrir square for massive demonstrations. more than 16 people have been killed. 780 wounded sunday and monday in the country according to egypt's health minister. egypt's armed forces warned president morsi and his muslim brotherhood backers that they had 48 hours to take steps for more inclusive government. saying the armed forces repeat their call for the people's demands to be met and give everyone 48 hours as a last chance to shoulder the burden of the historic moment that is happening in the nation. the mass street protests now seem as a large if not larger than the ones that proceeded former president hosni mubarak's departure in the arab spring of
5:21 pm
of 2011. with past as prologue, some are now calling for morsi to be ousted. oh joining me now is peter ga galbraith, state senator from vermont, former u.s. deputy envoy to afghanistan and former u.s. ambassador to croatia. welcome to "viewpoint." >> thank you for having me. >> john: for those who haven't been paying attention to egypt where is this happening now. >> coming from all segments. egypt society, i think the number one complaint is over the economy, the people had hoped when he took office that things would improve they haven't. it's tough to turn around an economy in a year. but in a country that is newly democratic there are high expectations, and today the military issued an ultimatum.
5:22 pm
they said if the president is unwilling or unable to reach a compromise with his opponents then the military would consider taking action in order to meet the demands of what they said--the demands of the great anything people. it's hard not to read that statement as an ultimatum and behind the ultimatum is the threat of a military coup. assuming that the military has backed off a bit and saying no, no they're not interested in causing a coup. >> john: the military has always remained arguably the most popular faction of israeli society. some of mr. morsi's advisers signaled they would not take a coup lying down. what happens if he doesn't respond and the deadline hits in
5:23 pm
48 hours? >> it would certainly depend on whether the military follow through with a coup. and if mr. morsi's supporters, the muslim brotherhood, it could come to something very serious something akin to a civil war. the egyptian military might keep in mind the history of military coups, in country after country the military comes in in circumstances of turmoil they're greeted by some segment of the population as the saviors, and then in a very short period of time they become deeply unpopular and ultimately it does bring damage to the reputation and standing of the military. it's not easy, actually, running a country. >> john: has mr. morsi has learned. at this point it's clear he doesn't want to give up his job. what can he and his administration do to avoid a
5:24 pm
coup? >> well, that's also a difficult question. the obvious thing would be to reach out to the opponents. there are some steps that could be taken making clear, for example, being supportive of religious freedom. moving to support freedom of speech and of the press, these are part of the concerns of the protesters. looking like you're trying to do something about the economy but at this point in time the protesters undoubtedly feel they have the upper hand. the military is on their side. the demand is not for compromise but for morsi to go. logically they probably should wait out the 48 hours and see if the military is prepared to do something. >> i don't see that happening. they seem to be a population
5:25 pm
very comfortable with change. do you think they want the change? >> after all mubarak's regime, which lasted 30-some years is essentially a military regime. and now a year later there is a great deal of popular demand. they want morsi gone, and they think the military can make it' that they're allies, but certainly the liberal elements of this anti-morsi protest is likely to turn against the military if the military tries to governor. that's the core of the democrat dilemma. >> john: do you think it's a safe bet whoever winds up running the country the core will be safe and that
5:26 pm
relationship will not threatened? >> i don't think that's a sure thing. the camp david accords have never been very popular in egypt. at the moment the egyptian protests are very much focused internally. but one of the incentives of keeping with the camp david process is the u.s. aid. now, the military wants it because the entire military depends on u.s. military equipment. i think it's likely that an further government in egypt will continue to respect the camp david accords, but it's not a sure thing. >> john: i want to ask you but about the other international crisis we're facing is eric snowden. do you think the russian government will give snowden
5:27 pm
asylum? >> it's hard to say. i can't help but imagine that the russian intelligence services would love to get what's on his hard dive drive and if they haven't looked at it already. on the other hand, president putin said he didn't want to do something that would worsen relations with the united states. so i think it's hard to predict what the russians would do. i think they would prefer not to be in this dilemma except they would like to get ahold of his computer. mr. snowden might find that he'll be spending a lot of time at the lounge in the airport in moscow. >> this is just an extraordinary story. we've had private manning where we had a million people who had
5:28 pm
access to at home document to those documents and he downloaded them. and here you have someone with access to this type of intelligence, the problem is there is always going to be people like snowden and manning. the problem is the assistance and company that would allow him this kind of access. that's what ought to have people outraged. >> john: the deadline is wednesday, thank you so much, mr. galbraith for joining us. >> good talking with you. >> john: up next, our wtf series visits that racist redneck backwards primitive state of california. don't go away.
5:29 pm
5:30 pm
5:31 pm
you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say
5:32 pm
anything. what the hell were they thinking? [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: the wtf series goes to california which has the largest sheriff department which has according to investigation has targeted blacks and hispanic for stops seizures, and excessive force. i know you're surprised to hear this. in the area north of l.a. a statistical analysis found that officers were far more likely to stop, search and harass plaque and hispanic motorists even though the contraband seizure rate is lower than it is for whites.
5:33 pm
it's a shame that the sheriff do not know about the great inroads. what about us, l.a. county law enforcement refuse to acknowledge this. i don't want to say that the california sheriff is racist, but paula dean just offered to cook in oil for them. this is not something that we would expect out of a cosmopolitan area like l.a. it's something that we expect out of a cosmopolitan sophisticated area like new york city. political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tough with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care
5:34 pm
about them, right? vo: the war room monday to thursday at 6 eastern
5:35 pm
5:36 pm
>> john: welcome back. public defenders are often the only barrier between low-income defendants and prison. these lawyers are often stretched way too thin and could take on hundreds of cases every year which makes it tough to prideprovide an adequate defense in
5:37 pm
each case. a new document recovers the deep south. >> i wish i could say that we were going to go in and win this case. i just don't know. >> the person they described to the police did not have braces and he did not have tattoos. >> we don't see happily ever afters in this profession, but this case will haunt me. >> john: the documentary airs tonight on hbo and marks the directorial debut of dawn porter. >> thanks for having me. >> john: what does the title mean. >> it hearkens back to the supreme court case "gideon versus wainwright," it established the right to an attorney. anyone who knows that phrase you have a right to an attorney.
5:38 pm
but what many people don't know it's only 50 years old and it hearkens back to gideon's case. >> john: many people don't realize this is a reasonably historical advance. >> yes, most people remember henny fonda's statement was the direction to their. clarence gideon was an activitier and he wasn't too fond of. >> john: as. who was a practicing attorney before you made this film, what surprised you the most about this aspect of the legal system? >> i think like most people, i just found it impossible to believe that anyone what plead guilty to a crime that they didn't commit. but i saw people repeatedly make that choice, and actually it was the rational choice to make. if you're facing ten years to life ten years is the minimum mandatory system for armed robbery in the state of georgia, you could also get life in
5:39 pm
prison. if you're looking at potentially a sentence of life if someone offers you three to five years you probably take it. >> john: what is the scenario where an innocent person might do that? >> i think people are presented with a terrible choice. which is i can either definitely guarantee i will go home at some point, or i can be at the mercy of a judge and it's just too hard and too risky of a situation for most people to risk. >> john: it's like the crucible in. >> it is, it is. the worst thing about that is that when you plead guilty, it's not like you check a box. you stand before a judge and admit your guilt then you're stripped of your rights as a citizen. you can't vote, you can't live in public housing, you can't get a student loan, you're a felon. >> john: and the state gets more federal dollars. >> you do have the census. >> john: how much do elections and politicians play into this problem? >> you know, most judges, there
5:40 pm
are many judge who is are elected, and i think a lot of judges find it important if you're running for election, you want to be the judge who is tough on crime. nobody wants to be the person that we're all familiar with willie horton, and how that ad campaign was wildly successful. in an effort to appear tough on crime i think judges will sentence people longer than the long minimums, or legislature will vote in tough sentences. in louisiana three drug strikes, you're in prison for marijuana. i think most people who have gone through college would not think they would be facing life in prison if they were arrested. >> john: incredible, and it's not too often caucasians who face this choice. >> it's not. who is arrested in this country is a really interesting question. so 80% of people who are going through the criminal justice system are represented by public defenders. 80%. >> john: that's amazing. >> that means 80% of the people
5:41 pm
are poverty-stricken, low income people. we know how poverty lines up with race. >> john: florida supreme court just ruled public defenders can now turn down cases because they'll have 500 felony cases and 250 250 misdemeanor cases to handle. >> you are very well-read. >> john: you know what are the implications of this new supreme court ruling. >> the decision in florida is being watched very closely by public defenders across the country. it means that the public defenders have the right the ability to turn down cases. it doesn't mean that they will. it will be really interesting. what is so critical about this case is that for the first time the florida supreme court recognized that whatever we're doing in criminal law we can't just continue to offer offer the cases to public defenders. the state will be forced to look
5:42 pm
at how many people are going in and how many people are going through the system. >> john: everybody knows when it comes to capital murder cases. >> she is the woman. >> john: poor people don't get an equal defense. >> yes. >> john: where do you see this going over the next ten years? >> i tend to be an optimistic person, and i've been so heartened by the response to the documentary. you know hbo bought it after seeing 20 minutes of footage. i think it struck a nerve with them. i think they saw these young people talking about the constitution, talking about people's rights. i think people like to be fair. i think when people understand what is happening and it's not fair that they'll be core of the change, that's what i'm hoping. >> john: it's a beautiful film, and you got me feeling proud of being an american. you can turn to this documentary
5:43 pm
right after the show. we'll urn right back the back the break.
5:44 pm
5:45 pm
cenk off air alright in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks! i think the number 1 thing than viewers like about the young turks is that were honest. they know that i'm not bsing them for some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know i'm going to be the first one to call them out. cenk on air>> what's unacceptable is how washington continues to screw the middle class over. cenk off air i don't want the middle class taking the brunt of the spending cuts and all the different programs that wind up
5:46 pm
hurting the middle class. cenk on air you got to go to the local level, the state level and we have to fight hard to make sure they can't buy our politics anymore. cenk off air and they can question if i'm right about that. but i think the audience gets that, i actually mean it. cenk on air 3 trillion dollars in spending cuts! narrator uniquely progressive and always topical the worlds largest online news show is on current tv. cenk off air and i think the audience gets, "this guys to best of his abilities is trying to look out for us." only on current tv! >> john: new york mayor michael bloomberg race, schmace it turns out you brown people you don't get frisked enough:
5:47 pm
>> john: somebody really doesn't want to be president. okay, let's unpack that statement. he said that may be, he says that. so black and brown people are disproportionately stop, but it isn't disproportionate enough. let's go to our esteemed panel dawn porter, director of "gideon's army" premieres at 9:00 eastern tonight on hbo. and tina due puy and jeannine brito. i would like to talk with you fine ladies about stop and frisk in new york, i'm white so i don't deal with this. but i've never met a black weed
5:48 pm
dealer, and never never getting stopped and frisked. what is mayor bloomberg talking about? >> you know, it's hard to understand what he's talking about. this convoluteed defense of policy where we know that nine out of ten people who are stopped are not charged with anything. so how he defends this policy, the last i checked i was a new yorker too, it would be nice to think that i could walk down the street without being frisked. >> cenk: not that he's cynical but he's suggesting that crime is down in some areas and bloomberg thinks he can sell this as working and let's make white people think that the policies work? am i talking rapidly? >> no, you're hitting the nail on the head. they broke down the numbers and found 106 black men were being stop and frisked.
5:49 pm
more black men are being stopped and frisk good 106% of black men? wow, it's a great tourist spot. >> there is a double up. >> john: there you go. is bloomberg afraid of being popular? >> he's basically admitting he's profiling people, and this is acceptable because he's going after the people who look like people who commit crimes, which is by definition profiling. it's also in the data that he talks about numbers a lot the data that he's not getting into is the fact that if you have community policing it's much more effective than creating animosity within these communities because then people don't report crimes, they're not witnesses to crimes. crimes continue to happen in those neighborhoods because there is no police force that they trust. >> john: and it makes life tougher for cops. let's take this radical position that maybe crime is not the problem but a symptom of the problem, and the problem is
5:50 pm
poverty, the problem is economic disenfranchisement, the lack of jobs and crummy neighborhoods. is attacking the problem the right way to fix it or how could mayor bloomberg fix it? >> i'm glad you asked that because i'm disappointed in the mayor for defending the policy rather than talking about what we can do to help citizens and keep people safe. >> john: are you saying that the white billionaire is out of touch? >> maybe, call me crazy but i think we had a real opportunity with the falling crime rates. new york city has one of the most resilient economies in the northeast, yet we're leading the nation in profiling and setting a really bad example. i heard that chicago is thinking of starting a profiling system. we're number one, and chicago is about to follow suit, which i
5:51 pm
think this is not a legacy we want to help. >> john: is he helping? >> no, he's saying this is what people who commit crimes look like. i would like to have a police officer to have a more nuanceed tactic than white women who grip their purses every time. >> john: and i would say that the white criminals on wall street hurt us more. >> exactly. >> john: i would like to move on to another case, zimmerman is not using the stand your ground case but it's becoming a day series for daytime news channels. what do you think of the main media's coverage of the zimmerman trial so far? susie said, terrible. do we care or is this compelling because we know the characters i'll go to you first tina.
5:52 pm
>> i think trials are always--it's a public trial. now we have the internet television and so it's even more public than it has been before. we've always enjoyed trials. it's like i see no difference between difference between this trial and notable homicide cases. >> cenk: unarmed black teens are shot and killed every day and they don't get their trials on tv. is the case getting this much coverage because the public demands it or is it a great summer mini series. >> just to make is sensational and reality tv, but on the flip side there are members of the public who are concerned because the details of this case are so worrisome. it's kind of a-- >> john: kind of creepy. >> dawn, you shot a lot of footage in your film in
5:53 pm
