Changes at Guantanamo Bay

Candace Gorman is a lawyer who represents two detainees at Guantanamo Bay. She was thrilled to hear President Obama's announcement that the controversial center will be closed. She was also surprised to see changes the last time she visited, after Obama's inauguration.

Candace's clients now have access to a new, larger exercise yard with a view of the mountains. They can also watch television, occasional movies, and read a daily paper. These are things the men haven't seen in seven years. Candace tells Dick Gordon about her latest trip and her hopes for the future for her clients.
