Attorney Frank Goldsmith has a near-unique perspective on the US military base in Guantanamo and the supposed terrorists who have been detained there, most of them for years without charge. Frank has represented five of these men, most recently Khairullah Khairkhwa, who, along with four others, was exchanged for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in late May.
Frank has top-secret security clearance. He’s seen the government’s evidence against his clients, and he’s been to Guantanamo. Which puts him in pretty select company.
We sat down with Frank (full disclosure: Frank is on our board) to hear his perspective. The material was so rich and Frank so articulate, that we put together this brief excerpt video to tempt you into watching the full conversation, which we expect will be available by the end of the week.
Enjoy. We think you’ll learn a thing or two.
Many thanks to Frank, and to Nate Torrence, who shot the video and did all the video editing. –kl
