Title
A Panel Discussion on Torture, Detainees and the U.S. Military
Summary
The Law Library of Congress hosted its first program in its new multimedia room. Law Library Scholar in Residence Gary Solis moderated the panel discussion touching upon several current topics of national interest and concern: Guantanamo; "high value" detainees; military commissions; fair trials; and allegations of torture by agents of the U.S., including military personnel. With their extensive personal involvement in combatant operations, expertise in legal issues relating to prisoner torture and mistreatment, and their association with legislative concerns, the panelists provided tremendous insight to these timely subjects. The discussion was followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
