    No one's saying it's all America's fault. No one's saying it's none of America's fault. Those seem to be the stances that most Americans defer to when faced with information that their government is doing some really heinous stuff in the world.

    Open your eyes and practice discernment. The truth is always somewhere in the middle.
    You have to be kidding. I'm a serious critic of my federal government and what it does. But taking a comment from a terrorist enemy is hardly worth listening to.

    Iraq War Vet: US Camps Became 'Terrorist Universities' for ISIS

    Thursday, 16 Oct 2014
    U.S. military detainment camps in Iraq became universities for terror when hardcore radical Muslims who were jailed with moderate, nonviolent Iraqis used the opportunity to intimidate and browbeat them into becoming fanatical terrorists, according to a U.S. Iraq War veteran.

    Today, many of those who once were in U.S. custody are back on the frontlines, fighting for the Islamic State (ISIS) to establish a radical Muslim caliphate in the Middle East.

    The charges come from Andrew Thompson, who spent time in Iraq as a compound intelligence officer at Camp Cropper in 2009 where, he told CNN News, the radical prisoners actually ran the prison, forcing the often illiterate, moderate, and less threatening prisoners to obey their orders, while U.S. authorities did nothing to stop them.

    Khamenei is basically right. ISIS and Al Qaeda are U.S. creations, either directly or by proxy. Our foreign policy and tendency to play geopolitics with our globalized conglomerates is why we're in this mess.
    There is a kernel of truth in there in the sense that actions of the west have opened up opportunities for these more extremest groups that might have otherwise been suppressed.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Chavez flew in special scientific advanced planes and zapped clouds with laser beams for the people of Venezuela. Surely Obama can top that.

    Why stop with 10? Why not claim 100 years to really drive the point home? Truth need not be a factor.

    Why does it matter who is saying it, if the information is true?

    You'd ignore a fact just because your enemy says it?

    My god, what kind world are we living in where people are this willingly blind.
