11:20 -11:40

Topic: Should Army Generals be treated like the Dilberts of the world?: If one thing is undeniable about the U.S. military, it's the power of hierarchy. If a brigadier general tells a full-bird colonel to jump, the only answer is "how high?" But as part of an effort to reform the training of top military brass -- generals and admirals, specifically -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, has put into effect a review system similar to that used on much of corporate America to root out some of the recent scandalous behavior of high-ranking military officers. This will include taking into account the opinions of lower-ranking soldiers and sailors about how their boss does his/her job. Should the military adopt the way of corporate America? Is the political correctness enforced by HR review processes useful in a military constantly engaged in bloody conflict?  


Guest:  Tom Ricks, Senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. Contributing editor, Foreign Policy magazine. Author of “The Generals: American Military Command from World War II to Today” (Penguin Press, 2012)



Guest: Jeffrey Addicott, Professor of Law and the Director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas.



11:40-12:00 Revenge Porn: Revenge porn websites, where an angry ex posts sexually explicit photos or videos of a former lover, have fallen into a legal gray area for decades. Victims often find private photos of themselves posted on websites with their name, links to social media sites and even their address or phone number. But because current law protects the right to post these photos, there is often no recourse to get the content removed. Now, Florida is close to passing a bill to make it illegal to post nude pictures of someone online along with identifying information without written consent. The bill would subject violators to a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison, five years of probation and a $5,000 fine. Would a bill that bans this type of post online be violating the constitutional protection of free speech? What can victims of revenge porn do if this kind of content was posted without their consent? How can you protect yourself and your personal information so you don’t end up a victim of revenge porn?


Guest:  Mary Anne Franks, Law professor at the University of Miami School of Law
