WED, OCT 22, 2008 (56:43)

Public defender and author Steven T. Wax talks about his book, Kafka Comes to America: Fighting for Justice in the War on Terror. He reveals where and how our civil liberties have been eroded and how each of us can make a difference. Wax interweaves the stories of two men that he and his legal team represented: Brandon Mayfield, an American-born, small town lawyer and family man, arrested as a suspected terrorist in the Madrid train station bombings after a fingerprint was incorrectly traced back to him by the FBI; and Adel Hamad, a Sudanese hospital administrator taken from his apartment to a Pakistani prison and then flown in chains to the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
