The videotape, the war-crimes trial and the future of Guantanamo Bay

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Eyes are once again on the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This week, it’s because of the release of a hidden-camera video that gave the world a glimpse into interrogations. And, next week, pending a federal hearing Thursday, Osama bin Laden driver Salim Hamdan is scheduled to appear in Guantanamo’s first trial — the first American war-crimes trial since World War II.
Guest: Neal Sonnett, Chair of the American Bar Association’s Task Force on Treatment of Enemy Combatants. He also practices law in Miami, Florida.
