Top brass come clean in testimony about Gitmo:

“The testimony military investigators offered Wednesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee should have permanently dispelled every pretext the far-Left used to charge American troops at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with abuse. Lt. Gen. Randall “Mark” Schmidt and Brig. Gen. John Furlow’s terse summary – “No torture occurred” – could not more curtly refute the lurid charges contained in years of their hate-filled screeds denouncing the terrorist detention center. The stunning disconnect it exposes between reality and leftist fantasy should make the “antiwar” coalition ashamed of demonizing the American military during a time of war. And endless media headlines spreading every baseless rumor of “misconduct” by our soldiers, a Democratic Party Left keeping the spotlight trained on Abu Ghraib and Gitmo, and scores of leftists chanting the enemy's talking points all lead to one conclusion: The (once) mainstream Left has joined with left-wing extremists and Islamist radicals to form a united front against the United States' war effort…”

These savages have it easy at Gitmo, the only mistake the USA has made with these detainee’s is, we have given then to much freedom to speak. When people like this get the freedom to speak to the media, “scandals” like this happen. Find me one prisoner in the world who thinks they are guilty…The Al Qaeda “handbook” itself tell to claim abuse and mistreatment. But the liberals and terrorist supporters take anything a detainee says as gospel.

The solution? Don’t let the detainee’s speak to anybody. They should feel luck they were picked up and not killed while they were trying to kill Americans.

they did not deny WHAT happened they just said it's "not torture"....

Military interrogators forced a suspected Al-Qaeda terrorist held at Guantanamo Bay to wear a bra on his chest and thong panties on his head and to dance with another man, told him his mother and sister were whores, called him a homosexual, tied a leash to him and made him perform dog tricks, deprived him of sleep, threatened him with a growling dog and forced him to stand naked in front of women, Pentagon investigators told a Senate committee on Wednesday.

But military investigators said that while this treatment was "degrading and abusive," it was neither "torture" nor "inhumane."


This is just another gross example of the powerfull not being held accountable.
