The Fight for Human Rights at Guantanamo Bay w| John Baker
Today, Hunter kicks off this week’s theme of Guantanamo Bay coverage by speaking with Brigadier Gen (Ret) John Baker. When John Baker took over as the lead defense counsel for the Military Commission Defense Organization at Guantanamo Bay, he could not imagine the abuse of power that he would go up against. From FBI informants being planted on the defense team, to classified surveillance of the conversations between defense counsel and client, and the brutal, nearly relentless torture of the detainees, John saw it all. Even with potential confinement looming over his head, John never stopped fighting for the rights of his clients.
