Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was a visiting fellow in the fall of 2014. Huckabee also opposed the Iran nuclear deal and wildly suggested that President Obama was marching the Israelis to "the door of the oven" with the deal. He said Guantanamo Bay was a "distraction" because people perceive there is torture and abuse but really "every consideration" is made to take care of prisoners. Plus, Huckabee is a Christian Zionist who thinks the Jewish people have a "God-given right to reclaim land" and that Palestinians should not have a state in the "Promised Land."
