Good news! According to US lawmakers, conditions at Guantanamo Bay prison are "improving". That is the kind of good news that is almost better than saving a bunch of money on car insurance. you can go back to sleep now, conditions are getting better. members of the U.S. Congress went there and witnessed this for themselves! How much more proof would you need? It's not like this was an OSHA inspection at your plant where the supervisors knew it in advance and made you tidy up a bit. Right? |
Lets see now, they witnessed interrogations, inspected cell-blocks and ate the same lunch given to detainees. Thats so nice of them to swallow their pride to make these "terrorist" feel comfortable, isn't it? Hey, why didn't you tell us you were treating these people so well? Maybe you are treating them too well!
"The Guantanamo we saw today is not the Guantanamo we heard about a few years ago," Rep. Ellen Tauscher, a California Democrat, said Saturday. ~gulfnews.com
From behind one-way mirrors, lawmakers watched interrogators grilling three individual terror suspects. None of the interrogators touched detainees. ~gulfnews.com
"I think they're doing the best they can to define due process here," said Rep. Joe Schwarz, a Michigan Republican. ~gulfnews.com
Well, I am glad these members of congress have set the record strait. What say you? Now that I know the opinions of these well respected members of society, whom have the people's best interest at heart, there is no need for me to read alternative media anymore.
What kind of fools do they take us for!? That would be like me being a supervisor and telling my employees that my boss is coming in tomorrow to do a safety inspection. "Ok now you folks just do everything like normal". [wink, wink] "well, I'm satisfied, things are really improving here." Try making a surprise inspection and see how well that chicken and rice is prepared! So, I guess we should just let this lay to rest. After all, they took the time to give a pre planned visit to the prison, and they didn't see nothing wrong.
Are we really this gullible? Hey, I have a dime that was probably touched by Elvis! I'll sell it to you for a dollar!
Are we going to allow this new revelation of "improvement" draw us away from the facts!
Fact 1 By doing this inspection and coming back telling us that conditions have improved, they have admitted there was a problem. So, now that we have established that there were violations, what are we going to do about it? Shouldn't there be an investigation to punish those who are guilty? I mean, hey, if I got caught stealing 10 gallons of gas last year but this year I got caught stealing 5 gallons, are they going to let me off the hook since the condition is improving? I didn't think so! You admitted guilt, now I want to see some consequences!
Fact 2 It does not matter how good the conditions are for mistaken identities! You think Afgan farmers grabbed by mistake give a damned that you are improving your anger management? No, they do not! What is the government doing to restore their liberty? We want to make everybody free, then find out which suspects don't belong there.
Opinion: The only reason they finally gave attention to this is to keep us away from the "downing street memo" and WMD claims. To keep us from pursuing the lies! Michael Jackson is no-longer the headline, so what can we put out there? Well of course, they want the focus to be on the least of the issues. "Ok, we'll admit something went wrong, we'll work to improve it. Just stay away from the other issues." Wait a minuet, people are upset about the eminent domain issue, what do we do? Quick, schedule a tour for congress at the prison, that should throw them off a bit.
