The five men blamed for planning the attacks of September 11 have yet to be brought to justice. Nearly 15 years after that fateful day they remain detained at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the Bush administration created a parallel justice system in the months following 9/11. What was intended to be a harsher, swifter judicial structure for suspected al Qaeda operatives, is now raising questions over whether old-fashioned federal trials based in the United States are more effective in prosecuting alleged terrorists. NewsHour Weekend Senior Producer Phil Hirschkorn reports.
