Who are the Guantanamo Detainees?

Air Date: 
April 29, 2011
Over the weekend, the United States' only prisoner of war from Afghanistan was released by the Taliban in exchange for five detaineess held at Guantanamo Bay. The release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after being held captive for five years was criticized by some Congressional Republicans who argue the Obama administration negotiated with terrorists. With the news of the prisoner swap, we look back in the Washington Week Vault to April 2011 when Tom Gjelten of NPR reported on the detainees at Guantanamo.
