You’ll be delighted to know that terrorists residing at Gitmo are resting easy – a full uninterupted 8 hours per night. Now, I can’t tell you the last time I had 8 uninterupted hours of sleep – maybe I should get me an orange jumpsuit.
They are eating like little piggies too – all kosher Islamic food, which our troops are also forced to eat because care and comfort of the enemy does come first after all. Oh and when they are extra special good and don’t throw feces or other lovely bodily waste at the guards they get homebaked cookies and sometimes even Subway or MacDonald’s fish samiches. Talk about room service! Jeez! And most of these dudes have gained 20 lbs while in detainment. I have heard rumors that Bali is currently negotiating with the U.S. government to put in a spa and a team of personal trainers – I mean, we wouldn’t want these bad boys to become flabby would we? However would they survive once they are back on the battlefield – it could definitely cut their running time.
Boy, what ever happened to the good old days when rough and tumble terrorists could get by on a couple hours shut-eye, and whatever roots they could scrounge in their caves?
They happily pray five times daily on prayer rugs paid for by you and me. And of course, they also have qurans, which we infidels are not allowed to touch, also provided by the American taxpayer. Nice, eh? And of course, since they must pray 5 times a day on their government issue rugs whilst reading from their government issue qurans, they most definitely cannot be interrogated during any time period that might cut into their chats with their god. Heaven forbid! Amnesty International would come down on us like a ton of bricks. As it is, they are already writing us up for the transfats in the filetofish samiches – although, maybe if the deal with Bali comes through soon enough, we’ll get off with a warning and no fine.
How do I know these things you ask? I happened to read Deadly Kindness written by Richard Miniter a bestselling author and fellow at the Hudson Institute. He says:
ON the military plane back from America’s most famous terrorist holding pen, the in-flight film was “V for Vendetta,” a screed that tries to justify terrorism. It was a fitting end to a surreal, military-sponsored trip.
The Pentagon seemed to be hoping to disarm its critics by showing them how well it cares for captured terrorists. The trip was more alarming than disarming. I spent several hours with Rear Adm. Harry B. Harris Jr., who heads the joint task force that houses and interrogates the detainees. (The military isn’t allowed to call them “prisoners.”)Harris, a distinguished Navy veteran who was born in Japan and educated at Annapolis and Harvard, is a serious man trying to do a politically impossible job. I spoke with him at length, and with a dozen other officers and guards, and visited three different detention blocks.
The high-minded critics who complain about torture are wrong. We are far too soft on these guys – and, as a result, aren’t getting the valuable intelligence we need to save American lives. The politically correct regulations are unbelievable. Detainees are entitled to a full eight hours sleep and can’t be woken up for interrogations. They enjoy three meals and five prayers per day, without interruption. They are entitled to a minimum of two hours of outdoor recreation per day.Interrogations are limited to four hours, usually running two – and (of course) are interrupted for prayers.
One interrogator actually bakes cookies for detainees, while another serves them Subway or McDonald’s sandwiches. Both are available on base. (Filet o’ Fish is an al Qaeda favorite.)(read the rest here)
After reading this article I was utterly infuriated especially in light of the pc crowd’s cries of inhumane treatment of these men bent on our destruction. You want to see inhumane treatment of prisoners? How about this:
or perhaps this
Yes folks, this is what the enemy does to our men and women who fight for our freedom every day. This is the guideline used in the treatment of American prisoners. Kind of makes you think that water boarding ain’t all that bad, doesn’t it?
I sure as hell know these prisoners didn’t gain any weight while imprisoned. They did not have 1,000 pro bono attorneys respresenting their ‘rights.’ They did not get copies of bibles or the torah, or rosary beads or prayer time. In fact, the ones who survived were lucky to get out with their lives.
So the next time you hear somebody boo-hooing about how we ugly Americans treat our detainees or griping about a couple of loose cannons who dared to put underpants on some dude’s head – tell them to shut the fuck up! (and to take advantage of that free, introductory martial arts class – as they may need it sooner than they think)

I agree 100% with everything, AMR.
I think of the people on the streets of Boston eating maggot-infested shit out of trash cans.
They are, in a way, prisoners of a society run amok. I haven’t heard them complaining about the lack of prayer mats, though. (give me an f’n break)
I have no hair because all I seem to do these days is scratch my head. . .
Yes, the political correctness in this country empowers those who seek to do us harm. I don’t know why that isn’t obvious to everyone, but it doesn’t seem to be.
I saw on fox that the even have lazyboy chairs there go figure….and yet people here have a bird about how we are detaining these people….maybe we should have the enternment camps like WWII
Well, I don’t think I want to go as far as internment camps – but I’d like to see them stop being treated like they were guests at a resort. This stuff really alarms me, yet people don’t seem to care. Seems like they’ve bought into this idea that we are torturing people. Really pisses me off.
You were right, Annie – “infuriating!” Your post hit the nail on the head… now all we have to do is hit some politicians on the head. Wake up, people!
Thanks for the good read and reasearch,
As long as our elected representatives gain power and notariety from their positions they will, likely do their own bidding. I’m all for taking it back to the days when being a public servant was an unpaid and voluntary position. I do think there are some folks up on the hill who genuinely care and try to do right by the country -but unfortunately, I think there are far more who are in it for their own power trip. Perhaps we could effect some change if we had some of these folks do a little guard duty at Gitmo say one weekend a month? It might do more to change minds than all the angry letters and phone calls from constituents. Worth a shot. Don’t you think? 😉
Didn’t mean to make it sound like we should have those camps WC just make it like they are not at club med….
I know you didn’t Ger. It does get so frustrating though, doesn’t it? When you read about this sort of thing.
AUGH! This just disgusts me, beyond no end. How dare this go on! We should not even take prisioners! SHOOT 2 KILL. I hate the left wing of this country, they will get us all killed. My country is now being run by pussies who are afraid of their own shadow! WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS? I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!
Great post WC—
SB, I’m with you. What are we thinking? I guess we need to support those few in this country who are willing to stand up to the enemy and vote the others out of office. Of course that would mean we’d all have to stop being so self-absorbed and start caring more about the bigger picture than just our day to day lives. I think it’s easy for people to believe we really aren’t at war because, except for a few inconveniences – it hardly seems anything has changed. Unlike previous wars where people really did give up a lot during wartime.
Thanks for reading SB – oh and check out Miniter’s site – his articles are amazing, informative and thought provoking.
That is exactly why they should be killed and not captured. That way they can get just one right. Their last rights.
Evyl, you may be onto something.
hope you are keeping well. In my opinion, terrorists dont deserve any mercy or human rights, because they dont value other person’s life. They are killers and Killers should be hanged not be served. Keep Posting
It is hard to feel kindly toward people who seem to have no regard for other human beings. And we are asking for trouble by assuming that they if given the chance would return the kindness if they had our men or women in custody.
Sounds like Club Med. What an inverted, politically correct world we live in.
Yes, and it has to change – or there won’t be any world left to fret over.
