Gitmo Turns Six…A look at the world’s most talked-about prison.

Really now? No mention of the North Korean camps of death, called…Well, North Korea? BUT, Alas all lefty rags print, are FOR lefties…to drool over.

Sometimes, seeing is believing. The rumors of torture and soulless humiliation taking place at Guantanamo Bay ceased to garner much interest—until the pictures hit. Suddenly, the world took notice, and hissed. Since then, conditions at Gitmo have changed, advocates say, but the imprisoned remain. Today marks the sixth anniversary of the arrival of the first Gitmo inmate.

    Sorry. Only made it half-way through. Couldn’t stand the pompous git of a mouthpiece.

    Tiz fine SandiM, I did the same.

    Well, if you’re a Republican, just vote Huckabee if you want Gitmo gone. He wants to close it down and move the detainees there into U.S. prisons, which — as Fred done schooled him on in that last debate — would result in the grant of constitutional rights to terrorist detainees even though they are still enemy combatants.

    Are we sure Huckabee isn’t a clever plant by DailyKos?

    The sooner Huckabee is out of the running, the happier I’ll be.

  6. Ash Says:

    I don’t think Huckabee or Paul stand much of a chance.

    What did they expect? It’s a freakin’ prison!

    I only got halfway through too, but that’s because my doddering HP must have taken offense and rebooted itself.

Well, SAY something...
