Gitmo: “Some Of Most Pampered Prisoners On The Planet”

Americans are supposed to have sympathy for the accused terrorist detainees now on hunger strike to protest supposedly cruel conditions at the US military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“I don’t want these individuals to die,” President Obama recently lamented, adding he intends to close Gitmo and transfer the detainees to US prisons.

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.

The official called Gitmo detainees “some of the most pampered prisoners on the planet.”

He said they get as many as four choices of halal meals and have access to a new $750,000 soccer field. Islamic prayer beads and rugs are now “standard issue.” They get their choice of more than 10,000 Islamic books and videos stocked by a Muslim librarian, who also records soccer and Arabic TV for them. They even have their own clerics to preach to them in Arabic.

We need to send Sheriff Joe down there to run the place.

Never mind that many prisoners are being held without charges and without trial for years on end, separated from their families, friends, and homes for no apparent reason.


Idiots.

Can I get the next contract to build a $750,000 soccer field?

I figure two nets, some PVC pipe and a lawn mower will cost me a few hundred bucks. Nice profit margin.

Then they should close the place down and be done with this nonsense.

Exactly.

I would be very surprised if they had 750,000 dollar soccer fields in Supermax. Ship them there, let's get some trials going and end this silliness.

Detainees even persuaded prison officials to stop raising the American flag anywhere they could see it.

Gitmo is no longer a prison camp; it’s a state-sponsored madrassa. But that’s not good enough for these inmates. They’re now demanding newer facilities and easier access to lawyers. More are threatening hunger strikes and unrest if they don’t get their way.

So the Pentagon is considering plans for a $150million overhaul to what is already the world’s most costly prison per capita. Each inmate at Gitmo costs roughly $800,000 a year to detain, for a total annual operating budget of more than $170 million.

The military already has approved construction projects, including a new $11 million hospital and medical units for detainees, along with a $10 million “legal meeting complex,” where lawyers and human-rights groups can huddle with detainees.

Mostly, this is politics.

Both.


Criticizing Guantanamo apparently means I'm an Obama supporter? No liberal in his right mind would be a fan of the President.

There are plenty of Obama supporters on this forum in case you haven't noticed. Obama can do no wrong to them.

How could they not see what Obama is really about? Are they stupid or do they play stupid on TV?

I suppose they spend millions of dollars on court buildings to hold military tribunals so these terrorists can not have a trial? They are getting a million plus dollar building just to lawyer up and get told all the PC to spout off.

Last time I checked, they are not US citizens and are not guaranteed a trial. (Doesnt mean we should be just holding them either necessarily.) We need to end this war so bad. I can't believe these frickers are getting all of this shite built for them out of hunger. If these mother frickers want to be hungry, then let them be.

Second big problem...what contractors are getting rich off some of these building projects ? Because that's what this war is all about. I remember Obama supporters back in 2008 saying he would end this war and tyranny

Nope, he is just getting rich, droning, and accumulating more problems for this country than Bush ever had, all while stroking his peace prize.
