Daphne Eviatar, Senior Associate in Law and Security for Human Rights First, discusses the trial of Guantanamo prisoner Omar Khadr, the unconstitutional retroactive application of the Military Commissions Act, the US government’s apparent loss of faith in the civilian criminal court system, why the most radical of legal proposals come from supposed political “moderates” like Joe Lieberman, the sparse US mainstream media presence at Khadr’s hearings and the individual frustrations of those beholden to an unaccountable government.
