FireDogLake Book Salon: The Guantanamo Lawyers

Jonathan Hafetz and Mark Denbeaux, co-editors of The Guantanamo Lawyers, took questions from readers this weekend at Firedoglake.

As your read (and re-read) The Guantánamo Lawyers, you will learn things. It may be learning that Camp Iguana was at one point devoted solely to the detention of children under the age of 15. It may be learning that lawyers were harassed with military claims of underhanded underwear shenanigans, threatening national security. It may be learning that the Department of Justice seriously asserted a lawyer was damaging national security when she told her client of his mother’s death. Mostly, you will learn about the breadth and strength of the voices of those who became The Guantánamo Lawyers.
