Task Force on Detainee Treatment at National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

  • September 24, 2013
  • 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

On September 24, two members of The Constitution Project’s bipartisan, blue-ribbon Task Force on Detainee Treatment will join National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen for an in-depth look at America’s pre- and post-9/11 actions related to the capture, detention, and interrogation of suspected terrorists.  In the wake of President Obama’s renewed pledge to close the Guantánamo Bay prison – and amidst ongoing scrutiny of detainee treatment there – this timely conversation will encourage dialogue about our policies toward prisoners in Guantánamo Bay, Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere.  Joining Mr. Rosen in the conversation will be Task Force members Ambassador James R. Jones and General David R. Irvine.  The noon event is open to the public free of charge.  The National Constitution Center is located at 525 Arch Street on Independence Mall in Philadelphia. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
