Will Trump Start Repopulating Guantanamo?

GUEST: Karen Greenberg, expert on national security, terrorism, and civil liberties, is Director of the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School. She is the author of The Least Worst Place: Guantanamo’s First 100 Days and Rogue Justice: The Making of the Security State. She recently wrote a piece on Tom Dispatch called "Enemy Combatants" Again?

BACKGROUND: President Barack Obama promised to close the US detention center in Guantanamo, Cuba, but was ultimately unable to do so. Now, as Donald Trump continues Bush and Obama's legacy of unending war in the Arab and Muslim world, the question arises, what will Trump's policy on Guantanamo be especially given that he has shown even less respect for human rights and the US constitution than his predecessors?
