On the front page of the New York Times today we see that Bagram military base holds more than twice the amount of detainees, or prisoners, are being held at Guanatanamo- with the ranks growing rather than shrinking. And where, oh where, one wonders, is Osama, the man who symbolizes the root of terrorism in the U.S.
As I watch the candidates speak, I'm hoping that all of America wakes up and watches too, and gets involved. Our next president has a herculean task ahead- to focus, direct and sort out this mess. We are fortunate to have the ability to vote and make an informed choice- let's make the most of it.
