Saturday's Up topics include reactions to the Boston bombing, the situation at Guantanamo, and the Bush library.
On Saturday’s Up with Steve Kornacki, we’ll discuss America’s reaction to the Boston bombing and what it means to “self-radicalize.” We’ll also look at the current situation at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. We’ll talk about the hunger strikers and their transfer status and possible fates, as well as what a solution to the problem of indefinite detention could look like and how it could be created.
We’ll also talk about the newly dedicated library of President George W. Bush, his legacy, and how time is changing the way we view him and his policies.
