Playing Games At Gitmo
IBD Editorials ^ | December 1, 2008 | Michelle Malkin

The human rights crowd is right: Life is hard for a Guantanamo Bay detainee. The deprivation is unspeakable.

According to the facility's "cultural adviser," their brains have not been "stimulated" enough. So this Thanksgiving, America has drawn up plans to provide the 250 or so suspected jihadists at the "notoriously Spartan" detention camp with basic sustenance including, as reported by the Miami Herald, movie nights, art classes, English language lessons and "Game Boy-like" electronic devices.

Next up: Wii Fit, Guitar Hero, Sudoku, People magazine and macrame. Anything less would be uncivilized.

On a deadly serious note, the detainees aren't the only ones playing games at Gitmo. Some top legal advisers and supporters of Barack Obama, whose name detainees chanted on election night, are now rethinking the president-elect's absolutist campaign position on shutting the center down and flooding our mainland courts with every last enemy combatant designee.

Yes, reality bites. And Democrats must now grapple with the very real possibility that an Obama administration could potentially release a Gitmo denizen who would turn around and commit mass terrorist acts on American soil or abroad.

Nothing clarifies the mind like a jihadi boomerang. Never before have an administration and its followers matured so quickly in office — and they haven't even taken office yet.

Well men that that have plotted to kill innocent americans should have rights, hell lets give em a f%$@ turkey dinner while were at it, we already give our rapists and drug dealers cable! At this rate it would almost be worth to strap a bomb to a bus somewhere, or kill a couple people in a middle school, hell they get cable in jail, and i work 50 hours a week and I dont have cable!!!! whats the point, under Obama it would be easier to quit my job, start doing drugs and collect abundant gifts from the government for the rest of my life!

It pleases me, that they fell for a charlatan. Unfortunately, the whole country might have to suffer

David Cole is a red. Period. Big attorney with the CPUSA created Center for Constitutional Rights and protege of the late communist William Kunstler and others.

Anything he says is just a strategic reentrenchment. He did his best to defeat the Patriot Act.

I met and spoke to him during one of his book talks. He couldn’t give a damn about national security. Like any good red, he wants to keep the terrorist or the criminal on the street to be the revolution’s “lumpenproletariat shocktroops.”

We should put all the Gitmo-related “human rights” activists in GITMO and throw away the keys. They are the enemy as much as the animals in the cages. And the blood of hundreds of thousands is on their hands.

“...It pleases me, that they fell for a charlatan. Unfortunately, the whole country might have to suffer,,,”

That’s the problem with our system. You have to live with the one you voted for or against.

Why not treat these poor innocent boys to a pork BBQ with all the beer they can drink and entertainment by the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders?
