Backstory: Guantanamo

Thursday, March 10, 2011

More than two years after President Obama pledged in an executive order to close the detention facility at Guantanamo bay, the prison remains open. On Monday the President also reversed course and will allow military tribunals of detainees there to resume. We’ll speak with Carol Rosenberg, a reporter for McClatchy and the Miami Herald, about the reasons why the prison was created in the first place and what the future holds for its prisoners. We’ll also be joined by Emily Berman, counsel in the Brennan Center's Liberty and National Security Program.

Guests:

Emily Berman and Carol Rosenberg
