For The Record

They May Not Know Art, But They Know What They Like!

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­arly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­ogy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-looted art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.

Knock, Knock? Who’s There? Either a Strongbox or a Wall Safe. It’s Undecided. In this post we're going to take a look at the recent Supreme Court ruling on 4th amendment rights and smartphones and how this ruling could impact the ongoing debate over NSA spying. We're also going to look at the other side of the coin: the 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination during a time when encryption tools strong enough to thwart law enforcement and the NSA are becoming increasingly mainstream. Is encryption like a strongbox or a wall safe? You might be surprised by just how important that question has become. Read more »
