Chubby (Terrorist) Chaser Alert: Yo! Yo! Yo! There’re Fatties in Gitmo

Time to start a Gitmo chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Fat Acceptance.
Despite all the baseless complaints that Islamic terrorist prisoners at Guantanamo Bay are maltreated and not given good or enough food, their weight gain says otherwise.
The magnificent halal meals are so good and so calorie-laden–and the appetites of the Islamic terrorist prisoners so hearty–that the Islamofascist inmates have gained a lot of weight.
From a just-published AP story:

Many detainees at Guantanamo Bay are becoming fat.

Gitmo Halal Meals Are More Like Buffets Fit For a Sultan

Meals totaling a whopping 4,200 calories per day are brought to their cells–U.S. government dietary guidelines recommend 2,000 to 3,000 calories per day for weight maintenance–and some inmates are eating everything on the menu.
One detainee has almost doubled in weight, to 410 pounds (186 kilograms), Navy Cmdr. Robert Durand, spokesman for the detention facilities, said Monday. . . .
Detainees are simply served a wide variety of food and expected to choose what appeals to them.
“The detainees are advised that they are offered more food than necessary to provide choice and variety, and that consuming all the food they are offered will result in weight gain,” he said.
Most of the prisoners were picked up in Afghanistan and other conflict zones and were slightly underweight when they arrived at the military prison in southeast Cuba. Since then, they’ve gained an average of 20 pounds (9 kilograms), and most are now “normal to mildly overweight or mildly obese,” he said.
The meals include meats prepared according to Islamic guidelines, fresh bread and yogurt. . . . Traditional desserts and honey are served during the Ramadan observances.
The calorie intake at Guantanamo is well above the norm for federal inmates in the United States–they receive about 2,900 calories a day, said U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Michael Truman. . . .
Citing prison rules, Guantanamo officials wouldn’t disclose the identity of their heaviest detainee, but Durand said he now weighs 410 pounds (186 kilograms), and arrived in 2002 weighing 215 pounds (98 kilograms).

Hmmm . . . . Sounds like Rush Limbaugh needs to make sure he has XXXL sizes available for his Club Gitmo t-shirts.
Predictably, liberal “human rights” activists from SHAmnesty International are complaining that these prisoners are getting fat because they are stuck in small cells all day. On the contrary, these is hardly Islamic terrorist foie gras in development. Prisoners who behave are given up to 12 hours of exercise time per day, again well more and far better than prisoners in the U.S. domestic prison system. And they have a full gym of treadmills, stationary bikes, and other exercise equipment.
Sounds like Club Med, with better food.
Thanks to reader Jeff H. for the tip.

Again there is no fact finding but the entire article is written with “SOME PEOPLE SAID” or “HE SAID SHE SAID”

Turdgoat is the voice of the enemy. If the Turdgoats of the world think their precious Muslim soldiers are being mistreated now, wait until the war gets worse. One day, Muslim enemies, their “Moderate” Muslim sypathizers and their Leftist allies are going to regret the day they were born.

Apparently the way to a suicide bomber’s heart is through his stomach. Fat Islamo terrorists…only in America. It’s OK though, while they’re getting fat down in Gitmo, American prisoners are converting to Islam, working out, building muscle and just itching for parole. Good grief.

Yeah one slob ballooned up to 410 pounds, 4200 calories per day, I’d say Dick turbin doesn’t have a clue.
Oh and Turdgoat, come back when you get a cogent thought.

The next Democrat attack on Pres. Bush and Sec. Rumsfeld will be that they are torturing, or trying to kill, the terrorists by overfeeding them instead of by military tribunals. The NY City food police will no doubt file suit soon, too.

On the bright side maybe when the democrats finally get their way and set them free, they’ll be too fat to do anything but waddle around

Hopefully they are planning to give them all heart attacks….they should have served them all of the spinach from California that was infected with E-coli. Your not supposed to waste food right?

Too high a calorie diet, and too little exercise? Ha! That’s the exact problem two million plus people have here in Houston, Texas.
I am filing a lawsuit over my torturous living conditions immediately. I just have to figure out who to sue…

My, God, I’m divorced and have a 15 year old and we don’t eat that good, can we go to Gitmo, I’d love the beaches and I could home school my kid, sounds great to me.

drewsmom on October 4, 2006 at 9:20 am

so I guess we should starve these people to death since they are in Gitmo. Did not we release like half of them with out any charge since 2001. Whatever happened to inncoent proven guilty

Does anyone know the daily caloric rations for the US military personnel stationed at Gitmo?
My son’s school lunches are crap compared to what these guys are getting. I like drewsmom’s idea. Salemos a la playa!

The prisoners at Gitmo are IEC’s even according to the Geneva Convention, Illegal Enemy Combatants, maybe you would prefer the strategy carried out on Saipan, after a few suicidal charges the standing order was if he don’t stink stick ’em.
Maybe you would prefer the take no prisoners options, just think of the money saved on food alone.
Try rooting for the good guys for a change you know the ones protecting your sorry ass and putting theirs on the line over in Iraq.

Why, indeed, nobody talks about the three meals a day that the people at the OTHER side of the border (from Guantanamo Bay) do NOT receive daily?
Fidel Castro has been starving the Cuban people for half a century, yet all we hear is how a small group of POWs are “mistreated” in Guantanamo.
Why, oh, why don’t we hear the story as it really is?
BTW, Debbie, you’re invited to visit my blog (http://rafvrab.blogspot.com) and, if it passes your inspection, to add it to that large list of blogs on the right-hand column.
Chag Sameach,
