Justice At Guantanamo Bay

Kathleen T. Rhem

The tragic attack of 9/11 happened over a decade ago. In the aftermath, families have tried to rebuild their lives, a new skyscraper is rising on the site and we're winding down wars in two countries. But in a military prison on the island of Cuba, suspected terrorists continue to live out lives behind bars. For all of that time our two guests have followed events at the prison at Guantanamo Bay. Author Jess Bravin has researched and reported on post 9/11 interrogations at the prison and retired marine and now Judge, Stuart Couch, was tasked with prosecuting a high ranking terrorist. They will appear at UNC Charlotte to discuss the ethical issues surrounding post 9/11 military commissions but first they’ll visit with us.
