This week on Salon Radio, Glenn Greenwald interviewed Admiral John Hutson, former Judge Advocate General for the U.S. Navy, now Dean and President of the Franklin Pierce Law Center. Dean Hutson was among a group of retired military officers who met with members of President-elect Obama’s transition team — which included Attorney General nominee Eric Holder — earlier this month to talk about the country’s policies towards torture, rendition and detention.

Dean Hutson is also a supporter of the ACLU’s John Adams Project. Dean Hutson recorded this video explaining why this effort to assist with the legal representation of detainees prosecuted under the military commission system at Guantánamo is important to America’s justice system.
