    In the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, the U.S. rounded up hundreds of suspected terrorists in Afghanistan and around the world. Many ended up at a special military detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Instead of trials in military, federal or state courts, enemy aliens would be prosecuted by military commissions subject to the president’s command. Wall Street Journal correspondent Jess Bravin’s new book, The Terror Courts: Rough Justice at Guantanamo Bay

, describes the complex ethical and legal challenges dogging the Guantanamo Commissions.
