We’re Not the Khmer Rouge!
Richard Fernandez laments that, “History will probably remember the Guantanamo Bay prison for longer than the already forgotten Prison S-21, where up to 20,000 people were tortured and killed by the Khmer Rouge.”
As for me, I prefer being held to a higher set of standards than Pol Pot. I mean, of course we’re better than some of the most evil regimes in the history of the planet. But we’re aiming for shining city on the hill.
