Amnesty International Enters Realm of Ridiculous
In its latest turn of blatant anti-Americanism, Amnesty International released a report that criticizes the treatment of prisoners at the Guantanamo facility in Cuba, claiming that prisoners are being abused and that the facility should be shut down. This, following the misreported allegations by NewsWeek of interrogators flushing the Holy Koran (Quran) down a toilet as part of an intimidation tactic. These latest accusations have been met by strong denials from such figures as Vice President Cheney, General Richard Myers (Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff) and, as of today during his press conference, President Bush.
Once again a liberal organization is battering the American GI, while disregarding the abuses that many of these so-called "victims" had perpetrated on others leading up to their capture. Small cells and strenuous standing likened to Soviet gulags? Have these people even read early 20th-century history? This organization seems all-too-happy to board the Abu Gharib express, which in my view renders them worthless, albeit worthy of scorn and ridicule.
Where do they get this stuff? Is the AI now taking notes from the ACLU (another worthless organization, long bereft of its original calling)?
Has anyone ever asked: Just WHERE did these prisoners get their copies of the Koran? The answer: The same place they get their three religion-specific square meals every day, and all other accoutrements necessary to practice their religion. Would these same men, or their leaders, do the same for any of our soldiers or civilians they might have captured? We give them prayer mats, they take our heads...and WE are the bad guys???
