Force Feeding at Guantanamo and the Politics of History

Hosted by  • 

On Monday, the first trial over force feeding at Guantanamo Bay begins for a man who’s been detained for 12 years and hasn’t ever been charged with a crime. We talk to the detainee’s lawyer. Plus: Who should decide what students learn in their history classes? We take a look at the fight between the Colorado school district’s board and students. And our film critics look at the new film Gone Girl and this weekend’s other releases.
