What can I say? Have the UC Berkeley fellow on if you must. But ask him some tough questions too like those asked of Arlen Spector back last year. Perhaps I am a minority here as a fan of WNYC but wanting some more respected voices across the spectrum. And wanting them to be treated fairly. I think Arlen felt pretty roughed up. Here's an unasked question...
How many men in the countries to which these ex-Guantanamo prisoners were sent back, are unemployed... or are angry and depressed because of us? (Was it true even before the sad events of Guantanamo?)
