Maddow takes issue with Prez Obama's "prolonged detention" speech.
Maybe "American history" is much shorter than I have been led to believe, or maybe "never" has been redefined; that's been happening to many words, lately. The two presidents that Obama has been compared most favorably with, FDR and Abe Lincoln, both had systems like this. Both detained journalists and others who were critical of their wars. FDR also had Japanese-, German-, & Italian-Americans, entire families, put into internment camps during WWII. That census data really came in handy -- but, that's a whole other blog entry.
