Michael Ratner ~

Today we examine law and human rights on an international scale in a conversation with Michael Ratner, President Emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights. Michael has an unparalleled experience in this field. He is presently an attorney for Julian Assange, Director of Wikileaks, who is residing in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has sought asylum from extradition to the United States for the alleged release of internal security documents. Michael has also been involved in the case of Pfc Bradley Manning, who has endured brutal military confinement for more than two years for allegedly passing the documents to Assange. Thus Michael Ratner brings a unique vantage on this case of great significance.
