This week, after a brief rant about Romney's decision not to run again in 2016 -- and a few words about anti-vaxxers -- we go back to the archives for a terrific interview with human rights lawyer Layli Shirani, who's is representing a young Muslim man from California who was railroaded by the FBI and is serving a prison sentence for plotting terror attacks against the US.
