Since September 11, 2001, the United States Department of Defense has detained thousands of individuals under the laws of war. Today, all have been released or transferred but for 166 men in Guantanamo Bay and a dozen or so in Afghanistan that pose an enduring security threat. Over the past decade, some detainee policies and practices have changed, yet others have remained the same. What were the major mistakes and reactions to those mistakes? What were the major milestones and accomplishments in detainee and interrogation policy? What role did politics, the Congress, and the American people play in policy formulation and implementation? And what lessons can we learn from the past decade going forward? Join us to hear from our expert panel of four past and present Deputy Assistant Secretaries of Defense for Detainee Affairs.
