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. Monday morning at 9, we'll talk to local attorneys with experience in the serious and difficult business of fair trials for accused terrorists.

Your first speaker said “These people were waterboarded 188 times” and your host corrected him to 183 times. Then someone said, be precise. One of these people (KSM) was waterboarded 183 times, correct? It is bad enough using known facts. Thanks for all. Please include the US &NY;government history on prosecuting similar cases.
