They had Sen. Jim Inhofe on the local CBS affiliate. He needs to be put in Gitmo. According to him it is the Cadillac of correctional institutions, much better than in the states. There is one big, really big difference. There is no justice at Gitmo. There is very little here, but none there.
If they were picking suspicious people up off the street, not allowing them any rights, leaving them in there for years without charges and only limited access to attorneys with little or no access to the evidence …
Oh, I forgot, some if not all have been tortured. They aren’t given the rights of prisoners in the U.S. because they aren’t in the continental U.S. and most were picked up overseas, but are called “enemy combatants” and not prisoners of war because 9/11 was a terrorist attack by people without a country.
Let’s start the investigation of the GOP takeover of our rights; first pick the entire bunch up, stick them in Gitmo and start the waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation and put it on prime time and see if anyone starts telling the truth – Cheney, Bush and then Inhofe.
Please, someone stick a sock in Inhofe’s pie hole. When he visited Kosovo during the war there he came back talking about how good the lives of the refugees were because some of the children were wearing Nikes and now he says that locking people up for years, without charges, on a small area of Cuba is wonderful. They would be better off with Castro in control of their destiny.
This year let’s waterboard Republicans at the State Fair for entertainment. It isn’t torture and Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller want to create a torture amusement park.
My spell checker is suggesting I change Inhofe’s name to Unholy or Unsafe.
