Scott Horton Interviews Andy Worthington
Andy Worthington, author of The Guantanamo Files, discusses the WikiLeaks-revealed US negotiations to offload Guantanamo inmates scheduled for release; why resettling wrongfully-imprisoned Guantanamo detainees in the US remains politically impossible; how Obama can’t – or won’t – stand up to Republicans who won’t countenance the possibility of closing Gitmo and holding terrorism trials in federal courts; and the large portion of Americans subscribing to Sarah Palin’s fact-free worldview.
