Is GITMO a prison or summer camp for terrorists?
The federal debt is at an out of control $1 trillion, yet that does not stop the feds from continuing to waste even more money. GITMO terrorists get $750,000 soccer field. May I ask who actually provides the stamp of approval on such ridiculous and wasteful projects to the American tax payers? Add this to the list of Obama’s “shovel ready” projects.
At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches — at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.
The project was the highlight of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters at the facility covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.
The project began in April 2011 and is due to finish this spring. The detainees will now have three recreation facilities at Camp 6, which is home to “highly compliant” detainees who live in a communal setting.
In addition to an indoor recreation field and the existing outdoor recreation field, the new soccer field — selected because it is such a popular sport with detainees — is half the size of an American football field.
How do most Americans feel … what Atlas Shrugs said, “I think I am going to puke. Then cry. Or maybe cry first and then puke.”
