AlterNet Radio: How Romney Would Wreak Havoc on Red States; Report From Gitmo; How Many LGBT Americans Are There Really?

On the AlterNet Radio Hour this week, we speak with Jonathan Cohn of the New Republic about how a Romney victory would lead to an evisceration of the social safety net in the "red states," and fundamentally redefine what it means to be an American citizen.


Then we speak with independent journalist Jonathan Knefel, who recently returned from a trip to the Guantanamo Bay Naval base to report on the 'military commission' proceedings for Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, for The Nation.
