if you think about it Tony no war movies are ever as popular as the German ones. Shocking they were but also interesting and compelling to hear the stories. I still think the story of us imprisoning Japanese in WW2 is more shocking then Gitmo and our reaction to 9-11. Still though it shows America reacts over the top when we get attackes. It's sort of been that way for a long long time.
I mean seriously FDR like the poster boy of liberalism and even he got forced into treating Japanese Americans like criminals. I won't say that was his fault because he had a really racist country to deal with. but still our track record is we are some racist SOBS when we get attacked and we throw down after with an over the top attack.
