Former Green Beret Lt. Col. Gordon Cucullu recently visited Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to see how the detainees from the war on terror were being treated:
Meals for detainees are ample: we lunched on what several thought was an accumulated single day?s ration for detainees. ?No,? the contract food service manager said with a laugh, ?what you?re looking at there is today?s lunch. A single meal. They get three a day like that.? The vegetables, pita bread, and other well-prepared food filled two of the large Styrofoam take-home containers we see in restaurants. Several prisoners have special meal orders like ?no tomatoes? or ?no peanut products? depending on taste or allergies. ?One prisoner,? General Hood said, ?throws back his food tray if it contains things he has specifically said he doesn?t want.? How is he punished for this outrageous behavior? His tray is numbered, the food he requested is put on it, and the corrected ?order? is delivered to his cell.
It still doesn’t change the fact that the air conditioning was turned up too high. Somebody has to do something about the Gitmo Gulag! We don’t know what that is yet, but someone should do something, otherwise we’re no different from the Taliban.
Or at least, that’s what the loyal opposition says. Because they Support the Troops.
