Antiwar Radio: Andy Worthington

Andy Worthington, author of The Guantanamo Files, discusses the end of whatever small chance there was of closing Guantanamo, though half the prisoners are cleared for release; the Obama administrationís continued moratorium on releasing Yemeni prisoners, based on political pressure dating from the 2009 Christmas Day attempted bombing; why the material support statute should give everyone pause, even those who donít care about the plight of Guantanamo prisoners; and how the current SCOTUS composition (eight members when Elena Kagan recuses herself) guarantees gridlock on Guantanamo decisions, which will allow conservative circuit court judges to decide the law Ė not that Obama cares.
