This month marks the start of the tenth year of U.S. operations of the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

We talk with Cherif Bassiouni of DePaul University and author of "The Institutionalization of Torture by the Bush Administration: Is Anyone Responsible?" and Chicago attorney Candace Gorman, who represents two Guantanamo detainees.
