The Brookings Institution
Online Chat

The incoming administration has indicated that one of its first priorities will be to end the detention of “enemy combatants” at Guantanamo Bay. The Scouting Report continued its weekly web chat with Brookings expert Benjamin Wittes, who was online to answer questions about how Obama can work to put a legal framework in place to end the clash over detainee rights. Politico’s David Mark moderated.

Every Wednesday at 12:30 EST between the election and the inauguration, Brookings experts and editors and reporters from the Politico will host “The Scouting Report,” a live web chat discussing pressing issues facing our president-elect.
