Public Relations Problem and more

  • Kofi Annan says that the prison at Guantanamo Bay is torturing prisoners.
  • Donald Rumsfeld says the prison at Guantanamo Bay is not torturing prisoners.
  • Kofi Annan is calling for Gitmo to be closed as soon as possible and that prisoners should be transferred to the US for trial.
  • Donald Rumsfeld says that we can't just let prisoners go.

I know that the US has a public relations problem. I think that any move we make regarding Guantanamo Bay at this point will be met with extreme criticism.

But we've got to quit demonizing the accusations and instead answer them with honesty and integrity. And we've got to find a way to respect that there is more than one opinion on the matter -- coming from real people.

Do you think we can do that?
