FROM THIS EPISODE

US Special Forces are now on the ground in Iraq, and ISIS fighters are being captured as well as killed.  One is reportedly an American citizen. What are the rules for interrogation? Should detainees be held at Guantánamo Bay? 

Later on the program, Republicans, as well as Democrats, have accused Donald Trump of fomenting violence at political rallies. He denies it, but reporters say it's been building since his campaign began.

It's Detention and Interrogation All Over Again 32 MIN, 36 SEC

The US has been killing Islamic State fighters with airstrikes and drones, but now 300 Special Forces are on the ground in Iraq. They're conducting so-called "targeted raids," and taking prisoners. But they're not the only ones. Today, Kurdish Peshmerga reportedly captured a US citizen, Mohammed Jamal Amin from Virginia — who is said to have entered Syria from Turkey and then made his way to Iraq — complicating the issue of what to do with ISIS detainees. Questions about "enhanced interrogation" and Guantánamo Bay are already being raised in the presidential campaign.
