Vincent Warren: Neutralizing the Bush Legacy (5/21/09)
Vincent Warren, Executive Director, Center for Constitutional Rights
Though Guantanamo is set to close within the year, the new administration has a long way to go toward erasing a legacy of human rights violations, says Warren. He will evaluate the steps of the Obama administration in restoring the Constitution, calling for an end to torture, illegal detention and other key issues. Join us as he discusses the need for accountability for those who committed torture, war crimes and other violations of the Constitution. Part of The Charles Geschke Family’s U.S. Constitution in The 21st Century Series.
