GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba — Some prisoners at Guantanamo Bay will soon have a new, larger soccer field to help keep them occupied during their indefinite detention.

Obama has been ADAMANT about going through with cuts to our defense, putting soldiers out of work. How many soldiers could be employed for $750,000?

I really believe we have to fire this clown in November.

See, this is where a “reverse earmark” from Congress might be a good thing. Something like “before any American loses his or her military job due to budget cuts, all planned improvements to prisoner accomodations will be canceled.”

$750,000 for treasonous improvements. Just soooo wrong for so many reasons.

A whole 23 sources?

Calling Obama a Communist gets 5,000 sources easily.

Shame.

Solyndra really could’ve used that money to throw a party.

The selling out of America.........pure insanity..........time to impeach.......
At a time when the economy is in the pits, reducing the size of the armed forces, unemployment at 9%, cutting health care for veterans, gas at $5.00 a gallon.......yet we have nothing else to do but buy a soccer field for Al-Qaeda killers. When will America wake up? God help us.

I would agree with this expenditure if the moozlums could only play soccer by kicking korans around.

Why not be a terrorist?
You live in a shithole, have no job, no money, little food..
Be a terrorist, kill some non believers get caught and end up getting better housing then you had, more and better food, medical care which you did not have, and entertainment and activities provided!

A spokeswoman says the improvements cost nearly $750,000.

Wow! The Obama adminstration could probably have 'created' a temporary $25,000 per year job with that much money...

For the most part, Americans are awake; it's the dang American politicians that are the problem. I'll bet you $100 dollars if I went to my local downtown and stood on the corner and asked every person who passed me if they think we should build a bigger soccer field for terrorists at Guantanamo, they'd say &@$# NO.

I don’t mind if they have a soccer field, as long as it is loaded with well hidden IED’s.

If all goes well he could be playing on that field - but it won’t happen.

that’s because executions are the most exciting thing that has ever happened on a soccer field...
