Harper’s legal affairs contributor Scott Horton will join The Nation’s Ross Tuttle, ACLU Attorney Ben Wizner, and Radio Nation host Laura Flanders for a discussion of issues surrounding the planned Guantánamo military commission trials of six high-value detainees.

The program will be broadcast on Saturday at 2 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Central and 11 a.m. Pacific time and again on Sunday at 1 p.m. Eastern, noon Central and 10 a.m. Pacific time on XM satellite radio and on participating AirAmerica stations.
