You’re invited to hear lawyer Kristine Huskey discusses her book Justice at Guantanamo: One Woman’s Odyssey and Her Crusade for Human Rights, Sunday, July 26, 5:00pm, at Magers And Quinn Booksellers.
Kristine Huskey was one of the first attorneys to represent Guantanamo detainees starting in 2002, just 6 months after 9/11. She was accused of being unpatriotic and questioned at every turn for merely representing accused terrorists and standing up for the rule of law. Huskey went on to establish and become the Director of a National Security legal clinic at a top law school–University of Texas School of Law–also her alma mater. In becoming an expert on national security issues–detention, privacy, terrorism financing, military justice–Huskey became all too aware of the male-dominated aspect of her chosen field.
