This is a major story that should be getting more attention than it is. I’ve been watching the Today Show for an hour now and nothing has been said about it. I know Today is not America’s #1 source for breaking news, but such a story involving two innocents put in the middle of a political standoff should carry the morning’s headline and discussion- not national BFF day, the $232 million lottery winner, or Susan Boyle’s breakdown. I’m disappointed.
Yes, this is a major story. But to quote something I read on twitter:
“At least they were given a ‘trial’ which says more than the detainees in Guantanimo have gotten for many years. Maybe we should set a better example and then this won’t happen to our people.”
