Victory for Bin Laden's Driver at Guantanamo Sentencing

Hosted by

In America's first war-crimes trial since World War II, a six-officer military commission found Osama bin Laden's former driver guilty of supporting terrorism. The prosecution asked that same jury for a sentence of 30 years. Instead, it gave Salim Hamdan 66 months in prison…with credit for 61 already served. Carol Rosenberg is in Guantánamo Bay for the Miami Herald. Jonathan Mahler is author of the new book, The Challenge: Hamdan versus Rumsfeld.
