Has Guantanamo Bay Been Holding the Wrong Men? The Bush Administration calls prisoners at Guantánamo Bay "the worst of the worst," but one of its own top officials says at least a third never belonged there. The US Supreme Court says they have the right to challenge their detention , but dissenting Justice Scalia warns that could lead to Americans being killed. Out of 770 Guantánamo detainees almost 500 have been released; 60 more have been cleared. Do they pose a danger? We hear about the most extensive investigation so far into who they are and how they got to Guantánamo Bay.
Truth and Lies in Trumpland Donald Trump is using mis-information like no President has before him. It's an unprecedented challenge to the news media, and a potential threat to democracy. We hear how the "leader of all the people" is dividing Americans and confusing the rest of the world.
The US gets deeper into Middle East wars. What's the endgame? President Trump welcomed Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to the White House today… just one of the changes in America's approach to the Middle East since Barack Obama left office. We hear about that and the escalation of warfare as well as civilian casualties.
