Now On PBS

Season 5, Episode 36 of 52

Closing Guantanamo Bay's prison will do little to close the debate on what we should do with alleged terrorists. On NOW, as part of a collaboration with the nonprofit investigative unit ProPublica, investigates the controversial tactic of "preventative detention," a government plan that may detain suspects indefinitely without trial or even formal charges. Implementing such a plan may have far-reaching consequences on not just our fight against terrorism, but the integrity of the U.S. Constitution and the cause of human rights. Even with President Obama in office and Gitmo's days numbered, we're still asking: What price will we pay for peace on the ground and peace of mind? Next on NOW. Online: In an eye-opening web-exclusive video, a government prosecutor talks candidly about his appointment to convict an alleged 9/11 conspirator, and the surprising decision he made after gaining access to what he considers evidence of torture.
