Birmingham Defense

NPR's Debbie Elliott reports on the defense of former Ku Klux Klansman Thomas Blanton Jr. in the Birmingham, Alabama church bombing trial. Blanton is charged with murder in the 1963 bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Fours girls died in the blast. The defense says prosecutors have produced nothing that directly links Blanton to the crime.
