U.S. Detention Policies a Decade After 9/11: Two Perspectives on Security, a conversation between Pardiss Kebriaei (Center for Constitutional Rights) and Michael Sullivan (Ashcroft Sullivan) at Smith College, March 30, 2011

On March 30, Pardiss Kebriaei and Michael Sullivan joined in two conversations about whether going forward, the U.S. still needed Guantánamo or someplace like it.

Kebriaei, a staff attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights, has represented detainees at Guantánamo Bay and has sought accountability for torture and arbitrary detention. Sullivan, a partner at Ashcroft Sullivan LLC, formerly served as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts and as the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. As a U.S. Attorney, Sullivan prosecuted Richard Reid, known as the “shoe bomber.”

The 7 p.m. program shown in the video was sponsored by the Smith College Government Department with Pioneer Valley No More Guantánamos, Smith College Republican Club, and Smith Democrats.

A noon program at Western New England College (WNEC) School of Law was sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild WNEC Chapter, WNEC Federalist Society, South Asian Law Students Association WNEC, and Pioneer Valley No More Guantánamos.
