Tenth year of U.S. operations of Guantanamo warrants a look at Bush and Obama administration's record on torture

This month marks the start of the tenth year of U.S. operations of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Despite pledges to close the prison and restore habeas corpus, President Obama has yet to do either. We talk with Cherif Bassiouni of DePaul University and author of "The Institutionalization of Torture by the Bush Administration: Is Anyone Responsible?" and Chicago attorney Candace Gorman who represents two Guantanamo detainees and maintains “The Guantanamo Blog”. Candace and Cherif discuss these issues in a 1/25/10 panel discussion at DePaul University’s College of Law.
