America’s Indefinitely Detained

 Friday, January 11, 2013

January 11, 2013 will mark 11 years since the United States opened the Guantánamo Bay Detention Center. Almost 800 suspected militants have been held at the prison in that time. Despite the White House’s refrain that the administration “remains committed to closing the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay,” 166 individuals still remain incarcerated. Has the Obama administration de facto embraced a policy of indefinite detention without trial?

Please join the New America Foundation’s Security Studies Program for a panel discussion moderated by Peter Bergen on what the future looks like for Guantánamo.
