Gary Johnson on Boston bombing, Guantanamo Bay and Syria


Gov. Gary Johnson on Boston bombing, Guantanamo Bay and Syria

As a manhunt ensued to find those though responsible for the attack in Boston two weeks ago, police put the city on lockdown. Even though the authorities apprehended the alleged bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev alive, not everyone has seen his capture and the subsequent treatment he's received as a triumph of the US justice system. Former US Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) along with many civil libertarians see the events in Boston more as something to worry about than a win. Former New Mexico governor and 2012 libertarian candidate for US president Gary Johnson joins RT's Meghan Lopez to discuss whether Americans are trading away their safety for security in the wake of Boston, and weighs in on the Guantanamo Bay hunger strike and reports of a chemical weapon program in Syria.
