More than 600 detainees from 42 countries are imprisoned at a U.S. naval base on Guantanamo Bay. None has been formally charged or able to see a lawyer. Host Neal Conan and guests discuss what lies ahead for the detainees, reports on conditions at the base and how two new legal decisions will affect terror arrests.

*Currently in litigation going on now in Washington, D.C. (detainees are being held in custody of the Defense Dept.)

*Visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute

Kate Martin
