RossReynoldsTwelve years to the day after 9/11, a day that changed the world, a distinguished panel discusses an issue that still lingers and divides: indefinite detention at Guantanamo Bay and beyond. Panelists Lorraine Bannai, director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality at the Seattle University School of Law; Jeff Siddiqui, of American Muslims of Puget Sound; and Joseph McMillan, an ACLU speaker who was part of the defense team of attorneys on a Guantanamo detention case, examine the impact of indefinite detention on human rights and civil liberties. Ross Reynolds of KUOW-FM (pictured at left) moderates.
