Recently in the news has been a lot about the torture being committed by U.S. forces, about the secret prisons, the extraordinary rendition, and more. It's my opinion those acts are very Unamerican, and it shocks and angers me that it is Americans who are performing them.
Colin Powell wrote a letter saying that the world is beginning to doubt the legitimacy of the war in Iraq and other things. I wonder what took Mr. Powell so long to realize this, but that's beside the point. What's on point is GW Bush's reaction, to throw a hissy fit rant of a press conference, and in the heat of his rant to demand that Americans stop thinking.
