An interview with a defense attorney at Guantanamo

I copied one of the most important messages in this article by Luke Hansen who writes of Guantanamo and interviews one lawyer who has tried to come to know one of the detainees personally.  This is one of the questions posed to the attorney:

Our government officials are trying perhaps the most important terrorism case in U.S. history in a widely criticized system. How do you hope Americans respond? 

I’ve seen exactly what I’ve hoped: the responses of family members who, despite their grief, are striving for just process; human rights organizations who have sought to preserve human dignity and human rights; civil liberties organizations who have sought greater transparency and access to information; many, many Americans who understand the balancing of civil liberties with the reality that 11 years ago there was a very grievous injury inflicted upon this country. I hope these efforts continue.
