Andy Worthington & GITMO Protesters Speak outside U.S. Supreme Court

on Jan 13, 2012

January 11, 2012 marked the 10-year anniversary of the opening of the U.S. prison at Guantánamo Bay, yet new laws and staunch political opposition have made it increasingly unlikely that “Gitmo” will close under President Obama. Peter Bergen moderated a discussion at the New America Foundation on what the next 10 years may hold for the detention facility.

This video features Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA,) who joined with moderator Peter Bergen, Andy Worthington, Col. (ret) Morris Davis, and Thomas Wilner to discuss national security and the tenth year anniversary of Guantánamo Bay.
