Lecture: 'Let's go to Guantanamo!' An On-the Ground Perspective on the 9/11 Trial

A talk by Lisa Hajjar, Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara. This talk focuses on the military commission trial for Khaled Sheikh Muhammad and four other men accused of responsibility for 9/11 terrorist attcks, a case often referred to as "the trial of the century." Professor Hajjar will discuss how the military commission system is struggling to contend with complicated issues in a multi-defendant death penalty case. One of the most confounding issues is whether the government can classify the defendants' own memories of their treatment at the hands of the CIA. Co-sponsored by: History Department, McCulloch Center, Office of the Dean of Faculty, Weissman Center, Politics Department, and Anthropology/Sociology Department.
