Members of Congress are Never Wrong

A Congressional delegation went down to Cuba for a little sun and Gitmo oversight. Shockingly enough, the Nazis running the place were able to hide all evidence of Gulag-like torture that got Senator Durbin so whipped up last week.
"The Guantanamo we saw today is not the Guantanamo we heard about a few years ago," said Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Calif.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, is one of many Democrats who have called for an independent commission to investigate abuse allegations and have said the facility should close. She said she stood by that position, but acknowledged, "What we've seen here is evidence that we've made progress."

I'm curious, since this is their first visit to the torture center of the Caribbean, how they know that it isn't the Guantanamo of a few years ago or that we've made progress. I guess it's just not possible that they were slandering the military by taking the word of our enemies who had visited the joint. They weren't wrong about Gitmo... Gitmo improved.


Chrenkoff has some good ideas for a Gitmo reality show

Smash is asking for suggestions for better reading materials for the Gitmo guests

Captain Ed does a fantastic job of ripping these two self-righteous wackadoos in Congress:
No, Congresswoman Lee and Congresswoman Tauscher, what we see is that the two of you and most of your colleagues shrilly slander the US military without doing anything to check your facts beforehand. Prior to this delegation, only eleven Senators and a handful of Representatives had visited Camp X-Ray at Gitmo, despite having access to the facility since the war started. Instead of taking advantage of their opportunity to travel on official business to investigate this "hellhole", as one Democrat called it during open debate, the Leftists like Tauscher and Lee simply regurgitated slanders and accusations from hysterics like William Schulz at Amnesty International, who later admitted that he didn't have any idea whether what he said was accurate or not.
