This is a good suggestion

How do you cure idiocy? Will Collier has a suggestion regarding the calls to free the Gitmo Bay detainees:

There's very little public information out there about the "detainees," and as a result, it's easy for anti-American outfits like Amnesty and the New York Times to project an aura of wronged innocence around the bloodthirsty thugs who're currently unwilling guests of Uncle Sam. I can't think of a better way to (a) illustrate the need for keeping these guys locked up and (b) discrediting the Jimmy Carter squishes of the world than releasing dossiers on the known activities of the Islamofascists who're under lock and key down there.

If sunlight is the best disinfectant, can it cure the idiotarianism of the Left? No, but all the fence-sitters on this issue would smarten up pretty quickly if most of the facts were known. On the other hand, expect Amnesty, Human Rights Watch, the ICRC, the EUrophilics, et al. to exploit anything that could be played up as sympathetic. It won't have any effect in the US, but it will appeal to the our enemies in Asia and Arabia, and the anti-American Left amongst the EUro-elite.
