    What do you suppose it is that makes people in America so evil?

    There are statistics claiming that despite all the money being spent on education in the United States the results have been greatly disappointing and that ignorance is now becoming quite wide-spread. Can you explain this phenomenon?
    Organized religion is a tool that helps keep the masses ignorant and superstitious, and of course obedient to authority, no questions asked. Faith is encouraged over reason.

    Are you certain of that?

    It is nothing of the kind, and the view is shared by a few. Did you read Imperial Hubris?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That is incorrect. Nothing in the EIT program was intended as punishment, it was intended as interrogation. Once inmates became compliant, they get treated pretty well - all the free healthcare and whatnot you could like. The Gitmo Detainees have all gained weight and are in better health now than they were when they were brought in.

    I've heard from my professor
    A suggestion: this is not a phrase that lends credibility to anything that follows it.

    that an obvious consequence of closing Gitmo would be that if we brought these inmates back to the United States we would have to give them due-process
    Your professor is apparently clueless. The consequence of closing Gitmo would most likely be that we send these inmates to other nations. Those who claim to be worried about the oh-so-precious-feelings of terrorists who would mass-murder innocents with joy would not like to hear about the way in which they are often treated in prisons overseas. If you think Gitmo is bad, feel free to spend some time dealing with the interrogators of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia .

    Well...I may be mistaken, but last time I checked, Guantanamo Bay is United states territory. I found it interesting how this man's story was written.
    The man is doing what he was trained to do. Seeking and attacking a weakness in his enemy. In this case, our media's willingness to promulgate stories that show the mean ole US in a bad light to weaken the willingness of the U.S. populace to defend themselves.

    The question was rhetorical in that you are just as certain of your faith as they are in theirs. I've read some of your posts and they also seem to reflect strongly held beliefs.

    Apologies for any confusion. Clinton supported regime change in Iraq in 1998.Iraq Liberation Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Then there is this CNN.com - Clinton defends successor's push for war - Jun 19, 2004

    Of course his opinion did lack consistency. After Supporting War, Bill Clinton Now Blames Bush for Iraq | National Review Online
