Former Guantanamo Prosecutor Gives First U.S. Television Interview

I posted recently about two teenagers held without charges for several years at Guantanamo Bay. Darrel Vandeveld was the military prosecutor assigned to the case of one of them,  Mohammed Jawad. After first striving to assemble evidence against Jawad from the disorganized mess of Guantanamo records, Vandeveld was moved to resign his post for ethical reasons when he discovered how the boy had been treated and how the small amount of evidence they did have indicated Jawad’s innocence.

Vandeveld is clearly no attention-seeker. Although he resigned his post in September, he gave his first interview on American television on a January 30th Rachel Maddow broadcast.
