Your Call 051308 Guantanamo's Future

The major candidates running for president say if elected, they will close down Guantanamo. Then what? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the future of U.S. counter terrorism policies with Human Rights Watch's Stacy Sullivan. She recently sat in on a trial in Guantanamo. We'll also talk with Ivan Eland, The Independent Institute senior fellow. What will happen to Guantanamo's 280 prisoners if it shuts down? And what can we expect from the conversation about counter terrorism in the lead up to the Nov. election? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Dr. Ivan Eland is a Fellow with the Independent Institute and the author of The Empire: Has No Clothes: U.S. Foreign Policy Exposed.

Stacy Sullivan is a counterterrorism advisor with Human Rights Watch. She is just back from Guantanamo where she was a court observer.
