Meet a Guantánamo detainee lawyer

Here is an interview from a few years ago of an American lawyer who volunteered to represent Guantánamo detainees before the Supreme Court. I don't know if he is one of the lawyers in the middle of the Liz Cheney/"Al Quaeda 7" controversy, but I think the interview is relevant to the discussion. He makes a very eloquent argument for why lawyers who defend unpopular clients do it and, I think, for why we should be praising their work. The interview is only about 6 minutes long.
