Another Puff-Piece on Gitmo

I hope your heart bleeds already.

Dare to compare: Here’s a piece of manufactured reality versus the real thing. But feeling sorry for those poor miserable Jihadi’s  in Gitmo is so much more popular than learning about what they actually have in store for us if the shoe is on the other foot.
From AP, of course:

By BEN FOX, Associated Press Writer
A black hood covered his eyes, shackles secured his wrists and legs. He felt lightheaded from two days without food and medication that made him sleep during the long flight. Startled by barking guard dogs, he was shouted at by troops in a language he didn’t understand.

“We didn’t know where we were or what was going to happen to us,” Adil al-Zamil, a former Kuwaiti government clerk who was one of the first to arrive at Guantanamo Bay after the base began receiving terror suspects on Jan. 11, 2002. “We were very, very afraid.”

In the early days, dogs were used to intimidate prisoners. Detainees were subjected to sleep deprivation and earsplitting rock and rap music. Some, including al-Zamil, said they were shackled in uncomfortable positions for hours.

Dare to compare:

Here’s a well written piece by Dr. Andrew Bostom:

“..that one can even ..finish off the wounded, or kill prisoners who might prove dangerous to the Muslims.. As for the prisoners who are lead before the imam, the latter has the choice, as he pleases, of executing them, or making them pay a ransom, for the most advantageous choice for the Muslims, and the wisest for Islam. The ransom imposed upon them is not to consist either of gold, silver, or wares, but is only in exchange for Muslim captives..” Abu Yusuf Ya’qub Le Livre de l’impot foncier Translated from Arabic and annotated by Edmond Fagnan. Paris” Paul Geuthner, 1921, Pp. 301-302

“…As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favour to them and pardon them.”….Abu’l-Hasan al-Mawardi, al-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah. The Laws of Islamic Governance, trans. by Dr. Asadullah Yate, (London), Ta-Ha Publishers Ltd., 1996, p. 192

Not that any of it matters to the moonbats when it comes to distorting reality. Anti-US propaganda is just that much more fashionable….

One thought on “Another Puff-Piece on Gitmo”

  1. Cry me a river about Gitmo! If it were up to me, Gitmo would be staffed with former KGB guys who are cash starved. No more Korans and no more media. In fact, I’d open a Gitmo along these lines in every Western country-they all need one!
