Guantanamo Bay, Illinois

"the whites of his eyes were nearly obscured by the red from blood vessels that had ruptured during the beating, and deep lacerations were held together by staples that had been applied to his scalp."

Is this more testimony from Democrat Dick Durbin about the Nazi, Khmer Rouge, and Stalinist tendencies of our soldiers at our terrorist POW camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba?

And while you ponder on that, remember that:

Ignorance of history destroys our judgment. Consider Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill), who just compared the Guantanamo Bay detention center to Stalin's gulag and to the death camps of Hitler and Pol Pot" an astonishing, obscene piece of ignorance. Between 15 million and 30 million people died from 1918 through 1956 in the prisons and labor camps of the Soviet gulag. Historian Robert Conquest gives some facts. A prisoner at the Kholodnaya Gora prison had to stuff his ears with bread before sleeping on account of the shrieks of women being interrogated. At the Kolyma in Siberia, inmates labored through 12-hour days in cheap canvas shoes, on almost no food, in temperatures that could go to minus-58. At one camp, 1,300 of 3,000 inmates died in one year.

...While not one single prisoner has died at the hands of soldiers in Guantanamo Bay.

So where was this outrageous example of abuse, if not Gitmo? It must have been Abu Ghraib, right?


For real, systematic human rights abuses, the repeated brutal beatings of prisoners by gangs of sadistic guards, the rape of inmates by their captors, and even dragging of inmates through fire, we must descend into the very bowels of Hell:

Democratic Sheriff Michael F. Sheehan's Cook County Jail in Chicago, Illinois.

Real torture, real abuse, on Dick Durbin's home turf.

Read more of the damning Nazi-like abuse of prisoners (and subsequent cover-up) by the corrupt Democratic Cook County political machine at John in Carolina.
