Live from Guantánamo Bay
The Guantánamo Bay military commission proceedings began today under new, flawed rules. The ACLU is one of four organizations that have been granted status as human rights observers at theese proceedings. When the tribunals began in 2004, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero and three ACLU lawyers attended the proceedings and blogged about the experience so Americans could know the truth of Guantánamo. The organization's participation continues today with Ben Wizner, an ACLU staff attorney. Wizner’s blog posts are available here.
