Call in to speak with the host
Montgomery Granger author of Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay is my guest. Montgomery J. Granger was assigned as a medical service officer responsible for the care and treatment of detainees in both Iraq and in Guantanamo Bay. The Major will discuss the future of Guantanamo, currently in the news; he believes the time has come for Gitmo trials to take place, and for it to remain a detention facility. Granger is a three-time mobilized U.S. Army Reserve Major (Ret.) who wrote the book Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior about his time at Gitmo.
President Obama has just signed an executive order creating a formal system to indefinitely detain prisoners without trial at the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In addition, the White House said it will resume new military commission trials at the base. The announcements mark the latest sign that the military prison will not be closed.
It's good to talk.
