Retro Report: A Look Back at the Detroit Sleeper Cell Case

Monday, November 18, 2013

This week the Retro Report documentary team looks back at the 2003 case of the Detroit Sleeper Cell. It was considered one of the most important post 9/11 terrorism cases, and it involved four men of Arab decent believed to be plotting attacks against an American airbase in Turkey and a hospital in Jordan. But a federal judge and the nation would soon learn that the men were innocent and were victims of a system eager for terrorism prosecutions. Retro Report producer Peter Klein joins The Takeaway to explain.
