Check it Out: The Response

The Response is a 30-minute courtroom drama based on actual transcripts of the Guantánamo Bay military tribunals. This film illustrates the legal and ethical challenges of enemy detention in the war on terror as it brings the viewer inside an administrative hearing to determine whether a devout Muslim engineer from Pakistan should continue to be designated as an unlawful enemy combatant and held without trial. Watch as three judges must make that decision while they seek to balance individual liberties with national security interests. Check out The Response from the law library.
