Lesley Stahl reports on Americans unjustly imprisoned abroad, held by foreign governments with whom the United States has thorny, or in some cases, no relations. Our government calls them “wrongful detainees,” and there are currently more than 40 of them. Danny Fenster, a Detroit native who had been locked away for nearly six months in Myanmar, was released last fall after efforts by former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. Stahl interviews Fenster, Richardson and the State Department official who is tasked with bringing Americans home.
Produced by Shari Finkelstein. Promo posted above.
