Video: The Trial

Meet the lawyers tasked with defending a 9/11 suspect at Guantanamo Bay. Follow Alka Pradhan, James Connell, and Lt. Col. Sterling Thomas as they prepare for what is being called “the biggest criminal trial in U.S. history.” Their client is Ammar al-Baluchi, one of the five men facing the death penalty for plotting the attacks. This short film provides a window into the buildup to the largest criminal trial in American history and reflects on the impact of a rarely seen part of the war on terror: the lack of accountability for the legacy of torture.
