Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"[T]he ACLU consistently portrays itself... as if it is only concerned with protecting the 'rule of law.' The reality is quite different. The ACLU has worked diligently to undermine America's stance in what was formerly known as the 'war on terror,' and has even been willing to disseminate propaganda on behalf of our jihadist enemies.
If you think this is hyperbole or an exaggeration, consider a video released by the ACLU earlier this month titled 'Justice Denied: Voices from Guantanamo.' As you would expect, the video portrays Gitmo in the worst possible light. But it goes well beyond any semblance of rational criticism. As Sahab, al Qaeda's media arm, could very well have produced it. The short video is pure anti-American propaganda, starring men who have dedicated their lives to the jihadist cause."
