Human Rights First is working with a group of retired military leaders to try to build support to close Guantanamo and try terrorist suspects in civilian courts. This week we’re in Pennsylvania and Delaware, as a first stop in this campaign trail, talking with congressional candidates from both sides of the aisle.
