Detainees and the 2008 Presidential Race

Hosted by

For years to come, it's likely the US will be hunting and capturing jihadists all over the world. Some will be too dangerous to release, but impossible to try as ordinary criminals.  President Bush and the current Congress are unlikely to workout a legal framework for dealing with them, which will leave that task to the next administration. Jonathan Rauch, senior writer for the National Journal, questioned all the announced presidential candidates to see if they had any plans.
