Guantanamo detainee transfer to Uruguay unlikely before vote: official

President José Mujica earlier this year accepted a request to take half a dozen inmates from the center used to imprison people detained after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, but at least one poll showed the move to be unpopular among Uruguayans. “I don’t believe the process will be completed in the next two or three months,” Diego Canepa, vice secretary of the presidency, told Reuters. Guantanamo has been criticized by human rights groups, with some of its prisoners held for a decade or longer without being charged or given a trial. President George W. Bush in 2002 to hold terrorism suspects rounded up overseas, Guantanamo became a symbol of the excesses of his “war on terror.” U.S.

The answer to Islamic State: by sword – or word?

As world leaders try to counter the killing spree of the militant group Islamic State, better known as ISIS, they should take note of this trend: More Muslim leaders are challenging the group’s core message that faith can be compelled by the threat of violence. Rather, the Islamic State is also mistaken in a more fundamental way: It demands an outward conformity in behavior, such women being veiled in public or men wearing beards, as a necessary first step for a person to achieve an understanding of doctrine. The more Muslims stand up for the idea that faith is first from the heart – a personal commitment to the peace and selflessness that all major religions teach – the more likely is it that young Muslims will decide not to join IS. The ultimate response to this jihadi advance, in other words, is active persuasion by the world’s one billion Muslims about their peaceful approach to faith.

South Carolina political campaign goes to the dogs

This Aug. 27, 2014 photo from from a broadcast ad shows Boots McMaster, the bulldog owned by Henry McMaster the Republican who is running for South Carolina lieutenant governor, in Charleston, S.C. With dogs in almost half of American homes, a number of South Carolina political candidates this year are featuring the family pet dog in ads, on web sites and on Facebook pages. College of Charleston political scientist Gibbes Knotts says such ads help to humanize a candidate but probably are not that effective in winning votes. Ads that contrast candidates - negative ads - tend to work better, Knotts says. (AP Photo/Bruce Smith)CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — In some ways, political campaigning has gone to the dogs in South Carolina.
