Rough Justice for Terrorists at Guantanamo Bay

Hosted by

book.jpgIn the aftermath of September 11, the Bush Administration began rounding up terrorist suspects and incarcerating them at Guantanamo Bay. Instead of trying them in civilian federal courts or military courts martial, officials established a parallel justice system, which is still operating. Wall Street Journal reporter Jess Bravin has been cited by the American Bar Association for enhancing understanding of "our most fundamental values and principles under law." Elsewhere he's described as "legitimately outraged" by what he uncovered during ten years of reporting on the trial of terrorist suspects at Guantanamo. That's the subject of The Terror Courts: Rough Justice at Guantanamo Bay.
