Last spring, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the Obama administration and declined to review a law that allows the U.S. military to indefinitely detain supporters of al-Qaida and the Taliban. The case, Hedges v. Obama, was brought by a group of journalists and activists including Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Chris Hedges. Hedges joins us to talk about indefinite detention and other policy issues. His books include "Empire of Illusion" and "War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning."
