President Donald Trump had said that he would “load [Guantanamo] up with some bad dudes.” He also said that he would be willing to bring American citizens to Guantanamo for trial, although current law forbids the trial of Americans in Guantanamo. What does the future hold for the current 41 prisoners at Guantanamo, and could the Trump Administration transfer other alleged terrorists to Guantanamo?
The Witness to Guantanamo Project is the world’s most comprehensive collection of filmed stories about the prison camps at the U.S. naval base in Cuba. Join Peter Honigsberg, founder and director, for a special lunchtime discussion.
Sponsored by the Human Rights Archive in the Rubenstein Library and the Forum for Scholars and Publics.
