The evil one

Mohsin | Chris Matthews, the liberal giant who hosts MSNBC’s Hardball, said in a recent programme: “There is a good argument out there that Gitmo and all that it represents worldwide has caused more people to sign up for organisations like Al-Qaeda to give up their lives in suicide attacks on Americans because they are so hateful of America, because they see us as the evil one. “
