An NPR investigation reveals allegations of gross mismanagement at Guantanamo Bay. How much money do whistle blowers say is being wasted to keep the military prison and a court running?

John Reed By "normalizing" you must mean presenting facts objectively, clearly, and concisely, right? Would you prefer that NPR tell you how to feel in response to these facts?

Biden just does not understand what the problem is. And that should all the reason anyone needs to not support him.

Travis Tern Sounds like you escaped your information bubble buddy you might want to hop back in before information explodes your brain. If you think NPR is liberal try the Intercept or Chapos Trap House. You should prob just go back to Ben Shapiro to comfort you from the harshness of reality.
