As far as I can recall, no one ever said that war is fun.Â As far as I can recall, no one ever said that prisons should be fun places, either.Â Still, the Muslim prisoners being kept in Guantanamo have it pretty damned good especially considering why they are there–as terrorist suspects who not only despise America but who may have killed Americans and who, given the chance, would kill as many of our troops in Iraq as they could and perpetrate even more heinous atrocities on our soil.Â
We could house them and treat them in a Club Med atmosphere, accord them all the rights and privileges accorded our domestic prisoners, including law libraries, gym facilities, conjugal visits (i.e., sexual romps), etc. and then release them so they could continue their terrorist ways.
Instead, we merely provide, “basic supplies, such as clothing, towels, sheets, blankets, soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste.
They also are given a copy of the Koran and three ‘culturally appropriate’ meals. Prayer rugs also are distributed, and a recorded call to prayer is broadcast five times a day.”
Nevertheless, Muslim convert and former Army chaplain, James Lee, and Amnesty International USA, (AIUSA), are currently protesting the horrendous treatment of the terrorist suspects at GITMO.Â
I wonder if Lee and AIUSA officials witnessed the horrendous events of September 11th, 2001 or if they would care if we suffered another such attack?Â
War is Hell.Â Keep that in mind, AIUSA and Mr. Lee!
