Rep. Brian Bilbray Discusses Gitmo Detainees, Border Violence

When you have a member of Congress speaking on a subject as controversial and critically important to our country as the closing of Gitmo and they say things that are factually false, it is your duty, KPBS, to challenge them. For example, you should know enough about the facts on the subject to have challenged his remarks about the WH plans to release detainees "into the community"which of course they ARE NOT. Or the comment that these detainees are "prisoners of war" or the comment that "they broke the rules of the Geneva Convention". These are outrageously false and it is your responsibility to call him out on it. Or at very least, let more callers speak out. By letting these comments go unchallenged you not only act as corroborators of his lies you stand as supporters and disseminators of misinformation. SHAME ON YOU!!!
