Attorney Joseph Margulies comes on the show to discuss his recent article about his client, Abu Zubaydah, who is currently being held by the CIA without charges. Zubaydah was one of the first men caught up in the chaos after 9/11, in this case mistakenly identified as a high ranking member of Al-Qaeda. Zubaydah is a former Mujahideen fighter but has no affiliation to Al-Qaeda or 9/11, maintaining that they, along with ISIS, are violating the teachings of Islam. He has been tortured extensively and has never gotten a trial.
Discussed on the show:
- “The Innocence of Abu Zubaydah” (New York Review of Books)
- Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri
- Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
