“American War” with Omar El Akkad 11:46 Journalist Omar El Akkad has spent his career covering the Arab Spring in Egypt, military trials at Guantanamo Bay, refugee camps in Afghanistan and the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson, MO.

So there that, but thanks for carrying the warm bucket of semen for the wrong team while using the classic accusation of “you educated are arrogant elitists, that why you lose” when in fact we just won 3 million more votes.
