Two students from Ball State University, Matthew Smith and Caleb
Hoagland, recently participated in a protest to shut down
Guantanamo Bay. Red Alert
Politics published an article, "
Ball State student waterboarded to show support for Guantanamo Bay
closure," quoting Ball State students as well as our program
officer of public relations, Hillary Cherry.
"Guantanamo Bay uses interrogation techniques to gain
information on future terrorist attacks to protect the American
people," Hillary Cherry, program officer of public relations at
Young America's Foundation, told Red Alert Politics in an
email. "Smith and Hoagland should be thankful to our soldiers
stationed at Guantanamo for protecting their First Amendment rights
to stage this appalling protest in the first place."
