GUEST: Heidi Boghosian, a lawyer and executive director of the A.J. Muste Memorial Institute. She also co-hosts the weekly radio show Law and Disorder, on Pacifica Radio’s WBAI in New York, and is a blogger for the Huffington Post. Her new book is called Spying on Democracy, Government Surveillance, Corporate Power, & Public Resistance.

As part of an on-going series of interviews for the Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum, we turn today to Heidi Boghosian to explore the links between government spying and corporate invasions of our privacy. The CIA, NSA and the Pentagon rely on outside contractors to much of their work, but what if big corporations could use them as well to spy on activists opposed to their actions? Corporations aren’t bound by the constitution like government agencies and therefore aren’t required to honor the same rules when it comes to surveillance.

Produced by Brave New Films, The Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum features Sonali Kolhatkar’s interviews with a series of academics, journalists, and activists. Henry A. Wallace was the 33rd Vice-President of the United States and served under Franklin D. Roosevelt during WW II. He ran for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket in 1948 and was known as the champion of the “common man.”
