Podcast: Golnaz Fakhmi on Bagram

The call on July 26 was hosted by Dr. Dennis Loo, of our Steering Committee, author of Globalization and the Demolition of Society and Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush & Cheney.

The prisoners at Bagram, in Afghanistan—even more than those at Guantánamo—are entirely forgotten in a black hole.  See Andy Worthington's piece.

The guest was Golnaz Fakhimi, on the staff of the International Justice Network which is fighting in US courts for the rights of the Bagram prisoners.  Golnaz will present on the status of the thousands of detainees at the US prison in Bagram, the Obama administration's current efforts to deny them habeas corpus, the history of the prison, and the work of the IJN.
