Flat-panel displays for terror detainees?....
But who believes this?
Here are the latest goodies for Gitmo detainees, as reported by Commentary Blog's Alana Goodman:
[T]he administration has reportedly made certain upgrades to the facility to enrich the lives of the detainees, including a world-class soccer field, a “communal living” environment with cable TV and entertainment, and life improvement classes. Yes, they are still detained indefinitely, but at least they can learn how to write a cover letter or hone their watercolor techniques:
Among the recent improvements to the facility commonly known as “Gitmo”: a heavily guarded soccer field for detainees known as “Super Rec,” which cost nearly $750,000 and opened this week; cable television in a communal living quarters and “enriching your life” classes for detainees, which include instruction on learning to paint, writing a resume — even handling personal finances. …
Many of the improvements have been made at the most modern facility in the detention center, known as Camp VI, a communal living compound that houses about 80 percent of the 169 detainees currently held at Gitmo. There, detainees who are deemed to be compliant with the rules and therefore eligible for more privileges are able to watch 21 Cable TV channels, DVD movies, read newspapers and borrow books from a library.
Why stop there? How about ... REALITY TV LIVE FROM GITMO!!!
Just think of these surefire hits: "Dancing With the Gitmo Stars!"--Susan Sarandon Boogies with KSM! "The Terror Apprentice!"--younger detainees are reviewed by The Donald. "Guantanamo Idol!"--Barbra Streisand, Sean Penn, Leo DiCaprio judging.
Bottom Line. World-class soccer fields are for David Beckham.
