Wow- you have no redeemable qualities. Listen to the lectures and dispute them if the panelists were so incorrect-

I for one find it interesting that an open homosexual like Greenwald defends Muslims more than his own marginalized group, and he does so with knowledge and candor. What do you say to that?

Greenwald also hates the Kenyan Marxist, Barry Hussein Sotero, and holds him accountable for mischief and treachery the world over. What say you to that?

The US government should not be involved with any humanitarian aid or actions at all. Let private individuals choose to give of their money. It's past time our government stopped taking our money and using on any other peoples, especially not Muslim countries.

US food meant destined for humanitarian purposes is stolen or siphoned off and sold on the black market for those who can afford it.

It very seldom goes to those who need it the most!

The West cares about the starving. The middle east only cares about Islam.

Al-shabab have said as much!
