Great Piece: Cal Thomas Goes to Gitmo

By Debbie Schlussel
My friend and mentor, syndicated columnist (the most syndicated newspaper columnist in North America) and FOX News contributor Cal Thomas, has a great column, this week, about his recent visit to Guantanamo Bay. There have been many pieces about Gitmo, but this one’s the best . . . by the man who is the best political columnist in America. It’s especially apropos, given that tomorrow (Saturday) is Veterans Day.
A couple of excerpts:

Guards are exposed to significant threats and long-term risks. Many of the detainees threaten to kill the guards and their families should they get out or be given the chance to communicate with their associates on the outside. Guards cover up their names, but Admiral Harris says the detainees have ways of learning them through our legal system. The detainees are not nice guys, and none has been converted to the American point of view by being treated humanely. Yet, Admiral Harris says, “Not a single case of torture or inhumane treatment has ever been substantiated. We are the most transparent detention facility in the world.”

How We Treat Our Enemies: Gitmo Halal Meals For ONE Terrorist

One detainee has said he wants to write a book, How to Kill a Man in Three Seconds. Another, who has assaulted a Guantanamo guard on numerous occasions (with makeshift weapons, human waste, semen and vomit), stated that he can either go back home and kill as many Americans as possible, or he can leave here in a box; either way it’s the same to him. . . .
“At least 20, maybe as many as 40, who have been released have rejoined the battle,” says Admiral Harris, including one with a prosthetic leg paid for by American taxpayers.
Americans should be proud of those who serve their country by protecting us from these really bad men. They live up to their slogan, which is posted on a sign at the camp entrance: “Honor Bound to Defend Freedom.” They defend our freedom and their honor.

AMEN. Remember that, as we celebrate Veterans Day. And read the whole thing.

Dont ever believe that ISLAM is from SALAM which mean peace. ISLAM is from SALLIM which mean surrender.( in the first few years of islam when they use to invade other tribes they use to tell them ASLIM TISLAM which mean Surrender and you will be save. Thats how the name ISLAM came. So I believe the stories of teh guards when they say that these people will be recycled once they are out.

What Cal didn’t note was that our own guards are required to comply with the Islamic belief that menstruating women, the impure, and unbelievers must not handle a Qur’an.
In acquiesence to that odious belief (effective where Muslims rule and sharia law is in effect)our guards must wear white gloves when handling a Muslim detainees Qur’an.
So, who’s really in charge there?

For the security of GITMO personnel and their families, no detainee should leave GITMO alive.

This is really an abomination. These rations are probably far better than our own combat troops on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan OR in the brig at Pendleton receive.
How far our nation has sunk in terms of dealing realistically with these cruel, vicious, sadistic swine.
During de-nazification following WWII, the US with the blessing of Harry Truman and in violation of the Geneva Conventions imposed a near starvation diet on the entire German population within its zone of occupation. Trumans philosophy was “Since we don’t know which ones were nazi’s, we’ll teach them a lesson by starving them all”.
I believe this is also current US/UN policy toward Serbia…part of the clinton legacy.
Now with with the lunatic left and RINO’s in pretty much complete control, these rotten islamofascists who are far far beyond any hope of rehab are fed like kings compared to our own troops in the field, fattened up, provided with f*#king aclu lawyers and turned loose to resume jihad.
Bush says we are at war. Can anyone recall FDR inviting the american nazi party to a Whitehouse reception during WWII??
The US and Europe are in critical need of “de-islamofacation” and return to constitutional government.
The US Constitution was NEVER intended to protect abominable swine (i.e.; islamofascists and their allies, the lunatic left, RINO’s, ACLU, etc) who would exploit its provisions to bring about the destruction of our nation.
It’s time the patriotic citizens of the greatest nation on the planet woke up to this fact.

Having worked in a Prison, I can tell you that the Gitmo Prisoners are getting far more than US Prisoners could ever dream of and they are getting better meals than our own solders.
When is the insanity going to stop. It is so outrageous that these scum bags are treated like royalty.
Our military has been Neutered and so feminized that it is now beginning to effect our national security when a perfumed prince of an Admiral actually justifies running the prison like a 4 star hotel for Terrorists.
What really blows me away is that we are giving them better medical care than our own citizens receive on Social Security or Medicare.
The Pentagon has gone of the deep end and so has the Bush administration.

Sadly what many thought to be an “honorable statesman president” (i.e.; GWB) has morphed into a ball of silly putty in the hands of the lunatic left.
The only question seems to be: Is this “morphing” the result of the endless, merciless, attacks by the lunatic left bordering on paranoia from the very beginning OR is this all part of a hidden agenda?
AND, secondly, is the administration reluctance to defend itself against even the most vicious attacks the result of bipartisan wishful thinking OR is this all part of a hidden agenda to cut conservative mainstream America off at the knees and bring about a national sense of malaise and defeatism?
All other factors considered suchas the Bush “amnesty/open borders” policy, the “effeminate” military chain of command and enforcement of girls rules on our combat forces in the WOT, the selected prosecution of our combat troops for violating “girls rules” in carrying out their mission of killing the enemy, the Bush Whitehouse “open arms” policy toward snotty islamofascist special interest groups, plus an almost endless list of additional insane policies, my guess is the “hidden agenda” explanation is the most likely.
