Close Gitmo and Use our Legal System
SAT, 07/24/2010 - 1:45PM, Miranda 1-2
A year and a half after his inauguration, Obama has failed to deliver on a key counterterrorism goal: to close Guantanamo Bay. Indeed, with new revelations about a secret prison in Bagram, proposals to legalize indefinite detention, and the festering debates about where to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, questions about how and where we should hold detainees remain contentious. This panel will revisit these questions and discuss ways to close Gitmo and return to the rule of law in our detainee treatment.
PANELISTS: Adam Serwer, Matthew Alexander, Marcy Wheeler, Rep. Jerry Nadler, Vincent Warren
