Winning the hearts and minds

Need I say more. There is a Zeitgeist that goes way beyond a couple military prison guards: one that characterizes contemporary America aptly. It is an imperialist Zeitgeist that has existed in one form or another since the land was first colonized, and that has only metastasized in the intervening centuries: one that views those "Others" as subhuman, unworthy of empathy, of humane treatment. I'd suggest that rather than focus on the "bad apples" as no doubt the US media spin machine will do, we focus on the tree that bore the tainted fruit.
