GITMO spoils the Inmates while many Americans go hungry.

GITMO - detainees get 'infidel' gym replaced
But just a few years ago, detainees got so plump from overeating hummus and other dishes from the camp’s Islamically correct menu that
commanders specially ordered treadmills to help them lose weight.
Then they ordered them again — because they weren’t made by Muslims.
“Even the hunger strikers were gaining weight because of all the food, so we go out and buy all this exercise equipment and throw it in the rec
yard,” a Gitmo official said of a 2007 requisition. “Within the first week, there were guys saying, ‘Hey, this stuff is made in the US — made
by infidels — and we’re not going to use it.’
“So what did we do?” added the official, who requested anonymity. “We took all of that s--t out, gave it to the soldiers to use, and bought them
equipment that was made in a Muslim part of the world.”
The Pentagon declined to comment.
- All meals are Halal. 4 choices for Halal meals.
- the terrorists get a new $750,000 soccer field.
- the terrorists get Islamic prayer beads, rugs, and a Qu'ran with it's own little hammock for each one.
- the terrorists get 'Muslim library with 10,000 Islamic books and videos stocked by a Muslim librarian,
- the terrorists get Arabic TV.
- the terrorists get Muslim clerics preaching in Arabic.
- the terrorists get high end medical care.
- the terrorists get housing which is usually better than the housing they have back home.
And get this ... the terrorist detainees managed to get GITMO not to fly the American flag in sight of them. It's an American military base and yet
the flag can't be flown where these terrorists will see it because it might upset them.
The USA should either run GITMO like a prison full of terrorists should be run. Or they should CLOSE IT and put the GITMO prisoners in civilian
prisons instead of in the country club where they are now. The inmates have better food and better medical care and better everything in GITMO than
they ever had back in their homelands. It's a better standard of living than many many Americans have. And it's all at tax payer expense.
And for crying out loud ... the terrorists aren't going to detach from their extremist muslim beliefs if they are continually provided access to it.
Common sense .. cut them off from it so they can detox from that deadly terrorist cult they are in.
"Just let them go" some will say. No. These are terrorists who have tried to kill innocent people and who plan terrorist attacks. Those we have
let go just end up back on the battlefields with their bombs and weapons. The battle cry of the far left is that these are inmates are innocent
people. But they aren't. They are terrorists. Those we've let go have just ended up back at terrorist camps and engaging in terrorist
'They are imprisoned and miss their families and homeland' some say. So what? That's what happens when you engage in terrorist activities. If
you can't do the time, then don't do the crime.
'Just get out of Afghanistan" ... Sure. I"m all for it. But that doesn't do anything about the terrorists that have been caught and are in
"put them on trial in civilian court" .. sure.. lets spend more money. Usually in war time prisoners of war aren't put on trial. (although Eric
Holders firm is just itching to get the $$ making business and so is pushing for this) But then what happens when they are found guilty of terrorist
activities? Put them in civilian prisons or keep the GITMO country club open? And would the prisons bend over backwards for these terrorists like
the GITMO prison has? That's just shifting the cost from the feds to the states.
It's just not right that the terrorist inmates have a much better life than many Americans and that American tax payers are picking it up. And NO
PRISONER ... be it at GITMO or in the American prison system .. should have a better life than the average American who is behaving him/her self and
not in jail. IMHO
