From Gallup poll, 3 June 2009:

“Two-thirds of Americans (65%) oppose closing the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba and moving some of its prisoners to U.S. prisons, and 74% oppose moving the prisoners to their own states. The public is far from convinced that Guantanamo has weakened U.S. national security - just 18% believe this.”

We don’t all think alike. Nor are we all equally informed. That 18 percent puts me in the “fringe,” and that is a first!

Charles Manson would be a cellmate any jihadist would deserve. Who, pray tell, would object to the "Mastermind of 9-11" spending the rest of his time with Charlie?

Put an old guy in a suit. Provide a few million to get him elected to high office. Give him air time to make statements like, "Do you REALLY want a terrorist living in your neighborhood?" and watch the sheeple fall in line.

The public has never been flush with wisdom, but the last 30 or 40 years have been very, very bad for intellectual discussion based on critical, analytical thinking.

There are still many sheep who think leaving Vietnam was un-American, chicken shit, cowardise, and the result of bleeding heart liberal ideology bent on ruining the entire country.
