Last British Detainee Released From Guantanamo

Guantanamo detainee Shaker Aamer touched down in London today. He was the last British detainee held at Guantanamo Bay. Aamer was held there for nearly 14 years without charges or a trial. Military officials have portrayed Aamer as a dangerous Islamic terrorist, but there was never proof or charges brought. Human rights advocates are calling him a victim of the war on terror. At Guantanamo,  Aamer served as an unofficial spokesman for detainees, drawing attention to life inside the prison, leading to a mass hunger strike at the prison. We hear more about his story, and what it portends for the future of Guantanamo.
