Watch "Getting Out of Gitmo" Tonight on PBS

Tonight (January 27) at 9pm ET PBS will premiere the new Frontline segment “Getting Out of Gitmo,” about the 17 Uighurs illegally detained at Guantanamo.  Check out the trailer here.

Afterward, be sure to take Amnesty International’s Urgent Action on behalf of the Uighurs and our 100 Days Action, calling on President Obama to:

  • Promptly charge Guantánamo detainees with recognizable criminal offenses or release them immediately;
  • Ensure that those detainees who are to be charged receive fair trials in US federal courts;
  • Ensure that an independent commission on US “war on terror” abuses is set up.

  1. I didn't get to watch (hope to soon!), but from the trailer and the blurb, it seemed to repeat the old song about the complications of closing Guantanamo.

    I don't think it's complicated for the US government to follow international human rights law with respect to interrogation and detention.

    Nonetheless, cheers to Frontline for raising awareness about the Uighurs and for their excellent reporting in general.

    Looking forward to other's views.
