On a day surprisingly full of news about Edward Snowden, Fordham Law’s Center on National Security and PEN American Center added to the conversation on Jan. 23 by hosting a debate on the fugitive’s future.

The panel pitted competing views of The New Yorker journalist Amy Davidson against those of Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post. David McCraw, assistant general counsel for The New York Times, moderated the discussion.

The debate took place within hours of Snowden’s live Q&A on the website www.freesnowden.is, in which he directly addressed the question “Under what conditions would you agree to return to the U.S.?”  His answer: “The 100-year old law under which I have been charged … was never intended to be used against people working in the public interest, and forbids a public interest defense. This is especially frustrating, because it means there’s no chance to have a fair trial—and no way I can come home and make my case to a jury.”

On Monday, Jan. 6, Inside Fordham toured the two facilities see get a sense of the place where future leaders will be educated and housed.
