Today on the Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - Last Wednesday, despite widespread condemnation from international human rights groups, the Kingdom of Brunei became the first East Asian country to adopt sharia law.  The Islamic criminal law is set to include punishments such as flogging, dismemberment and death by stoning for crimes such as rape, adultery and sodomy.  Joining us to discuss this is John Sifton the Asia Advocacy Director for the Human Rights Watch

4:35pm ET - Naji Mansour is just the latest American citizen to claim that the US government orchestrated his detention abroad. Since 2003, at least eight other men have come forward with similar allegations saying they were pressured to become FBI informants and allege their American interrogators denied them access to legal representation while their foreign captors tortured them and all the while the US government knew of or cooperated with the abuse.  Joining us to explain these shocking allegations is Nick Baumann the Senior Editor at Mother Jones.
