The U.S. Army is holding an Islamic chaplain who ministered to terror suspects being held in Guantanamo Bay. The chaplain, Capt. James J. Yee, is a Chinese American, a graduate of West Point and a convert to Islam. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks with Eric Lichtblau, who is covering the story for The New York Times.
