closegA hunger strike puts Guantánamo back in the news. So what?
A Presentation & Discussion by Luke Hansen

When a prisoner left Guantánamo in a coffin last September, it seemed to be the only way out for the remaining 166 prisoners. But a hunger strike involving at least 100 prisoners has put the prison back into the national spotlight, and President Barack Obama is facing new pressure to finally close Guantánamo. But should he?

LUKE HANSEN has traveled to Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, to report on the military trial for the 9/11 defendants, and he has met with former Guantánamo prisoners who live in Bermuda. Luke will describe these experiences and lead a discussion on what path forward best reflects national security concerns and fundamental values. Luke is an associate editor for America, the national Catholic weekly magazine.
