For years President Obama and the progressives who support him have classified the prison at Guantanamo Bay, where the United States has housed the world's most dangerous terrorists and enemy combatants for nearly two decades, as a medieval dungeon rife with human rights violations and horrifying conditions. The prison is so bad, according to Obama, it must be shut down in order to protect U.S. dignity.
But the real GITMO is quite another story, with detainees regularly watching movies and cable TV, spending time outside, playing video games, taking advantage of their religious freedom afforded to them by U.S. values, being given medical treatment and more. But as they say, no good deed goes unpunished and detainees often times urinate on guards and throw feces.
My good friend Pete Hegseth, who served in the Army and was stationed for a period at GITMO, recently made a trip to Cuba to show Americans the reality of detainee treatment.
"Bare boned facilities have been replaced with first class accommodations. Their healthcare? Exactly the same as our troops. Plus a library of thousands of DVDs, videos games and over 20,000 books," Hegseth reports from inside the prison.
"I have no reason to expect that their commitment [to terror] is any less than it was the day they were first captured."Gitmo guards speak with Pete Hegseth about the detention center- which includes top of the line healthcare, cable, video games, DVDs and more.Posted by Fox & Friends on Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Attorney General Loretta Lynch reconfirmed Wednesday during congressional testimony that it is illegal to transfer detainees to the United States and said President Obama cannot do it without Congress changing the law.
