04/04/11 – Andy Worthington – The Scott Horton Show

by | Apr 4, 2011 | Interviews

Andy Worthington, author of The Guantanamo Files, discusses the right-wing judges on the DC Circuit Court who think prisoners can be detained indefinitely with no evidence and who habitually reverse lower court decisions on Guantanamo habeas petitions; why today’s Supreme Court would either deadlock or rule differently on Boumediene v. Bush; the 15-month ban on releasing Yemeni Guantanamo prisoners, due entirely to their nationality; getting fed up and depressed after 5 years of Gitmo coverage, including 2 years of the “hope and change” Obama administration; and Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement that suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed will not get a federal trial, after all.
