Andy Worthington, author of The Guantanamo Files, discusses the nearly 75% success rate of Guantanamo detainee habeas hearings, why Gitmo inmate Mohammed Hassan Odaini – despite winning his habeas case and being cleared for release by the Bush and Obama administrations – remains in custody, the government’s incredibly flimsy evidence against the so called “worst of the worst” and how Washington political games and moral cowardice prevents justice from being served.
