FROM THIS EPISODE

Five years after President Obama ordered the closing of Guantánamo Bay, even former supporters call it a "recruiting poster for terrorists." We hear about prisoners held for 12 years without trial, videotapes of force-feedings — and the President's latest promise to veto any defense bill that doesn't allow Guantánamo to be closed. Also, dozens of separatists dead after Ukraine retakes airport, and fortune, truth and faith in the new China.
