Koppel Returns To Nightline

Former Nightline anchor Ted Koppel returned to the program Tuesday night, interviewed via satellite by current co-anchor Terry Moran in Washington. Koppel, standing outside the prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba where the U.S. continues to detain men and children rounded up in the fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, made only fleeting mention to his reappearance on the program, noting that Moran was "standing where I used to stand a few months ago," while he was standing where Moran was recently when he reported from Guantánamo. In a six-minute-long feature, Koppel discussed recent court rulings affecting the detainees in Guantánamo and the scheduled Congressional hearings on the prison. He also got in a plug for his three-hour special Discovery Channel documentary about the aftermath of 9/11, due to air on the five-year anniversary of the attacks.
