U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that five men accused in the 9/11 attacks will stand trial in a civilian court in New York City. A fair trial there faces two obvious obstacles: one has to do with selecting an impartial jury, and the other with the fact that at least two of the defendants have been tortured at Guantanamo Bay.

Your first speaker said “These people were waterboarded 188 times” and your host corrected him to 183 times. Then someone said, be precise.
