Democrats Finally Gitmo Information…
Democrats have finally visited Guantanamo Bay and just returned home to confirm for Americans just what Gitmo is all about. What they’re saying
may surprise you…
It will also explain why you’re not hearing any of these soundbites in the Mainstream Media:
Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) - ï¿½It was really an eye-opening experience. We found a well-run and well-organized camp. Everything we heard previously was negative, but what we saw was much different from what we had heard and read about.ï¿½
Reps. Ellen Tauscher (D-Calif.) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), agreed that prisoners are not being mistreated, but said charges of abuse at the prison still harms Americaï¿½s image at home and abroad.
No kidding. And where
are those bogus charges coming from? Tauscher even admitted that Guantanamo “‘has become a lightning rod’ for anti-American feeling”. She need look no further than her Democrat colleagues to see why.
Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) said in a floor speech yesterday that “prisoners were being well-treated.” He also said:
ï¿½Throughout the entire detention camp, terrorists were given clothes and bedding. They are given Muslim prayer rugs and Korans. There are arrows everywhere pointing them to Mecca. We even witnessed a prayer call announcing to the terrorists that it was time for them to turn to Mecca and pray.ï¿½
Sounds like Nazi Germany to me. Wait a second, isn’t Gitmo a government-run institution??? How dare they offer prayer rugs, Korans, prayer calls, or even post arrows pointing to Mecca. WHERE’S THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE????
In an obvious reference to Sen. Dick Durbinï¿½s (D-Ill.) widely criticized comments about Guantanamo, Bunning said the prisonersï¿½ treatment ï¿½is a far cry from the repressive regimes that critics of Guantanamo have compared out military to. Did the Nazis respect the Jewish faith? Did Stalin and Pol Pot practice religious tolerance? Absolutely not.ï¿½
Translation: Durbin, you’re an idiot.
At least I know there will be no Mainstream Media spin on this story… they’re not going to touch it with a ten-foot pole.
