Jess Bravin on the Campbell Conversations
(Note: This interview originally aired April 14, 2013)
One of the many controversial aspects of the post 9-11 war effort is the government’s use of military commissions rather than traditional criminal courts to try suspected terrorists. In this edition of the Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher speaks with Jess Bravin, the Supreme Court correspondent for The Wall Street Journal.
He’s been following these commissions from the outset, and is the author of The Terror Courts: Rough Justice at Guantanamo Bay. Rather than supplying the quick proceedings the Bush Administration originally intended, these trials have dragged on for years, and have complicated the seeking of justice in a variety of ways.
