...or "freedom fighters," as romantic liberals are wont to say.
This article, courtesy of liberal spin machine MSNBC, is sure to draw the ire of the collective liberal community.
"Lawyers for a Canadian prisoner at Guantanamo Bay released excerpts of videotaped interrogations Tuesday, providing a first-ever glimpse into the secretive world of questioning enemy combatants at the isolated U.S. prison in Cuba."The video, recorded by a hidden camera, shows 16-year-old Omar Khadr sobbing during a 2003 interrogation. This video, according to MSNBC, "provides insight into the effects of prolonged interrogation and detention on the Guantanamo prisoner."
Khadr is a Canadian citizen and is accused of throwing a grenade that killed an American soldier in Afghanistan. In the video, Khadr is being questioned by Canadian agents. Furthermore, the 16-year old detainee claims that he was tortured while at an American detention facility in Bagram, Afghanistan.
My first reaction? What the hell is this kid doing in Afghanistan? I'll tell you what he was doing, like many young, angry Muslim men that "heeded the call" of the mujahadeen during the 1980's, during the emasculated American response years of the 1990's, and post 9/11, they were fighting the dreaded "infidel (that's you and me)."
Where's the evidence of torture? Purportedly, the detainee was moved every three hours to deprive him of sleep and familiar cell mates. And THIS is torture? What would the touchy-feely liberal community have us do when interrogating TERRORISTS? Snuggle up to them? Rub their feet?
No, what the leftist idiot community fails to understand is that, in the misogynist Muslim world, only strength is understood. Moreover, the spineless left also won't admit that Guantanamo Bay is virtually a country club to its detainees. These detainees almost assuredly have been treated better than prisoners in this country, or better than a non-Muslim in a Muslim country.
Furthermore, former 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, himself detained at Guantanamo Bay, states that "we are in hell." Why? Because allegedly, "the military has not given him paper in his cell and failed to deliver a legal motion he wrote to the judge on this U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba."
Let the leftist uproar continue.
What the leftists refuse to fathom is that the "freedom fighters" in their vernacular, seethe hatred and are desperate to murder as many "infidels (once again: that's you and me)" as possible. According to one of the co-conspirators, he was proud to have trained and participated in attacks on the United States and her global interests:
"'Any attack I undertook against America, or even participated or helped in, I am proud about it, and I am happy, said Waleed bin Attash, a Yemeni who allegedly ran a training camp in Afghanistan for Sept. 11 hijackers."What the terrorists, and their liberal benefactors will not admit also, is that, according to Marine judge Col. Ralph Kohlmann, "they will not be allowed to see classified material because they lack security clearances and would risk a greater chance of being convicted."
