I received the following in my personal inbox, and thought it may be of interest to LFV readers.
Subject: Chat Live TODAY with GITMO Expert on Firedoglake! Please join Alliance for Justice in a live web chat with Vince Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights TODAY, August 4, at 3:00 p.m. EDT.

Vincent Warren has been the executive director of the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) since 2006. He spearheads CCR’s “Beyond Guantanamo: Rescue the Constitution” campaign and is widely praised as one of the nation’s most knowledgeable experts on issues related to detainee policy. We expect Monday’s discussion to provide a frank and lively exchange about the future course of Guantanamo policy.

Last week, Attorney General Michael Mukasey urged Congress to pass unnecessary legislation that would “sharply reduce the possibility that any Guantanamo prisoner could have a fair hearing.”

The attorney general’s remarks are indicative of the Bush administration’s failed detainee policies. These policies are the topic of Alliance for Justice’s upcoming “First Monday” web chat, brought to you in partnership with FireDogLake.

To read more about the attorney general putting political gain over the best interests of the American people, please visit our Justice Watch blog (afj.org/blogs). To participate in Monday’s conversation, simply go to www.firedoglake.com and create a free user profile.
