A U.S. Air Force translator is charged with spying and aiding the enemy at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Sr. Airman Ahmed al Halabi is accused of trying to pass military secrets to Syria. The charges come just days after a Muslim Army chaplain at the camp was arrested for allegedly possessing classified documents. Hear NPR's Eric Westervelt.
