He is the author of a widely read blog at Salon.com that focuses on civil rights, executive power, and foreign policy. He received the first annual I.F. Stone Award for Independent Journalism, and is the winner of the 2010 Online Journalism Association Award for his investigative work on the arrest and ill-treatment of Bradley Manning. Greenwald has written four best-selling books: How Would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President Run Amok (2006), A Tragic Legacy: How a Good vs. Evil Mentality Destroyed the Bush Presidency (2007), Great American Hypocrites: Toppling the Big Myths of Republican Politics (2008), and, most recently, With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law Is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful (2011).
His lecture is supported by the Henry M. Jackson Foundation, as part of a series of events marking the occasion of Senator Jackson’s centennial. This lecture is part of the Jackson School series on “9/11+10: A World of Change.” The lecture is free and open to the public.
