Jon Stewart's Extended Interview with Cliff May | Indecision Forever | Comedy Central

I thought this was one of Jon Stewart's best interviews. Granted, neither side was going to give, but still, I love hearing Stewart talk sense to madness.

another question that likely won't be answered: was the internment of Japanese-Americans in WW2 a good thing that helped protect the country? or was it a wild overreaction based on racial fears and helped along by nativist pressure groups?

a question about 60-65 years ago?

Why not go back a 100 years?
women voting and holding office a good thing that benefited the men that granted these privileges?
or wild over reaction to fears of being cut off and helped along by prostitutes and the clergy?

Misha Lerner, 4th-Grader, Questions Condoleezza Rice on Waterboarding (VIDEO)

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stirred controversy last week when, under questioning from students at Stanford University, she insisted that the Bush administration had not tortured and claimed, "by definition, if it was authorized by the president, it did not violate our obligations under the Convention Against Torture."

On Sunday, during her first public appearance in Washington since she left office, Rice was questioned again about her involvement in President Bush's torture policy -- this time by fourth-grader Misha Lerner at a Jewish day school. The Washington Post reports:

Misha Lerner, a student from Bethesda, asked: What did Rice think about the things President Obama's administration was saying about the methods the Bush administration had used to get information from detainees?


Rice took the question in stride. saying that she was reluctant to criticize Obama, then getting to the heart of the matter.

"Let me just say that President Bush was very clear that he wanted to do everything he could to protect the country. After September 11, we wanted to protect the country," she said. "But he was also very clear that we would do nothing, nothing, that was against the law or against our obligations internationally. So the president was only willing to authorize policies that were legal in order to protect the country."

Dems don't fund bid to close Gitmo - Washington Times

Quote:
House Democratic leaders Monday dropped President Obama's request for $81 million to close the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, bowing to strong Republican criticism that the administration lacks a plan to relocate terror suspects detained there.

Mr. Obama requested the money as part a spending bill for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but Democratic appropriators left it out of the bill circulated Monday among House Appropriations Committee staffers.

Republicans have been criticizing Mr. Obama for rushing to keep his campaign promise to close the prison camp at the U.S. Navy base on Cuba without a plan for what to do with the roughly 240 terrorism suspects currently held on the island.
Why aren't House Democrats funding this?
