You learn so much from Watching Fox news

I flipped through the channels this morning, trying to catch a glimpse of the latest news. I stumbled upon " The Fox and Fools" segment. They called in some retired Lt Col, who explained to everybody that the Guantanamo prison is not really a prison, but a recreational facility, where prisoners are far better off than their guards. They receive fantastic food, they have outstanding medical
care, recreational facilities, most modern of facilities, while their poor captors have to put up with verbal abuse from them and receive far inferior medical and dental care. And imagine - that inexperienced rookie Obama actually wants to shut this place down!

I am not making this up, these assholes made Joseph Goebbels Ministry of Propaganda look like amateurs.

I am sure it is the same kind of loving care that we have extended to those happy vacationers at the Abu Ghraib prison.

Well, when the "infotainment" section is made up of Hannity, O'Really, Geraldo and Beck, that should provide a very good clue as to what information that particular subset of folks is getting. Some is accurate, most is hyperbola or blatant misdirection.

So besides the Characterization as a "Recreational Facilty" (which was made as a joke) what about the description is inaccurate?

It was utilized to circumvent international law and the US Justice system. If my foggy memory serves, you swore to defend both since the Geneva Conventions are TREATIES for which WE are signatories and obviously US Justice laws are covered by that oath under the Constitution.

Show me where the law is that says it is an illegal jail?

And again, what about the description is inaccurate?
