Attorney Says Guantanamo Detention Camp Should Close
By Geoff Norcross
Flagstaff, AZ – It's been more than five years since the first detainees were sent to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. That's where the U.S. military is holding nearly 400 people suspected of plotting acts of terrorism against the United States. The vast majority of the detainees have not been formally charged, and many of them face indefinite detention. The facility has been condemned as a legal purgatory, where detainees are not afforded due process. That's where Joshua Colangelo-Bryan comes in. He's a New York attorney who is actually representing a couple of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. He recently spoke in northern Arizona about his experiences there, but he agreed to chat with Arizona Public Radio's Geoff Norcross first.
