Attorneys for inmates at Guantanamo Bay say they've been banned from bringing up the subject of torture in court. They also claim that a number of other legal restrictions are stopping them from building a proper defence in cases that could result in the death penalty. Truthout's lead investigative reporter, Jason Leopold, is featured in this interview.
