Who's Afraid of Closing Gitmo?

If Congress gets its way, no more detainees will be released from Guantanamo -- not even for criminal prosecution. Has fear of the "terrorist in our midst" trumped the sense that imprisoning the innocent is "un-American"? And were American values ever a real way to win the debate on terrorism and human rights? Joseph Margulies, professor at Northwestern University and co-counsel for torture victim Abu Zubaydah, joins us to talk about Guantanamo and the blossoming of fear.
