28. I'm just saying keep an eye on the situation

For those of us of a certain vintage, the notion that the Reagan administration swapped arms for hostages in Iran then used the proceeds to fund the Contras in Central America sounded pretty far-fetched once upon a time, too. As did the idea of more recent vintage that the United States would set up its own little concentration camp on the Cuban island so as to be beyond the reach of the American justice system, where "prisoners of war" are still being held and tortured to this day.
