Why the Charlie Daniels Band?
"...please try to realize that when you see news coverage [of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba] much of the time you're not getting the whole story, but an account filtered through a liberal mindset with an agenda...It's a shame that we can't have an unbiased media who would just report the truth and let us make up our own minds..." -- Charlie Daniels
