They were stripped of their legal rights, held for years without being charged or given a fair and open trial. Not only is the detention center a recruiting dream for radical jihadists, it costs American taxpayers $0.5 billion a year, roughly $11 million dollars for each detainee.

Attorney and author Kevin Zeese joins News.Views.Hughes to argue that calls for regime-change in Venezuela constitute a US push to seize Venezuelans’ natural resources and that President Nicolas Maduro has the support of the Venezuelan people, that economic sanctions and a global drop in oil prices are behind the country’s economic problems and that “the people of Venezuela oppose US domination.”
