On Today's Show

In our second hour (3:30 EST) we'll speak with the American Civil Liberties Union's national security project director Jameel Jaffer about the recent Hamdan tribunal ruling. Hamdan, Osama Bin Laden's driver, was sentenced to five and a half years in jail-- of which 61 months he will be "credited" for.

Also, the 2008 Olympics open today in China so it's only fitting that author Philip P. Pan joins us at 4:30 EST to talk about his book Out of Mao's Shadow: The Struggle for the Soul of a New China. Pan is a foreign correspondent for The Washington Post and the newspaper’s former Beijing bureau chief.
