Since 2002, Mohamedou Slahi has been imprisoned at the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba even though the U.S. has never charged him with a crime. A federal judge ordered his release in March 2010, but he remains imprisoned. Slahi has kept a diary that has been published as "Guantanamo Diary." It was edited by Larry Siems who is appearing tonight as part of a City of Asylum presentation. He'll join us in studio to discuss the process he went through in editing the diary.
