‘Democracy Now!': Riveting Look at the Terror Courts

Wall Street Journal journalist Jess Bravin reports on the controversial military commissions at Guantanamo. Describing it as “the most important legal story in decades,” Bravin uncovers how the Bush administration quickly drew up an alternative legal system to try men captured abroad after the Sept. 11 attacks. Soon evidence obtained by torture was being used to prosecute prisoners, but some military officers refused to take part. We speak to Jess Bravin, author of “The Terror Courts: Rough Justice at Guantánamo Bay,” and to Lt. Col. Stuart Couch, a former Guantánamo prosecutor featured in the book. — Democracy Now!
