The Straight Scoop from Charlie Daniels

We are indundated with moans and cries from the Moonbat Left about how Eeeeevil we are to the residents of Guantanamo Bay. Charlie Daniels reports on what he observed on a recent USO tour there. And DON'T even bother trying to tell me that the "authorities hid the true conditions there from him", I'll just laugh in your face. If the Red Cross can't find anything to bitch about, it isn't there, unless your willing to admit that they're just as incompetant as the average UN fact finding mission in the Sudan.

Take it away, Mr. Daniels!:

I've just returned from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Naval Air Station base
where we did three shows for the troops and toured several locations
around the post visiting with some of the finest military personnel
on planet earth. The kids seemed to really enjoy the shows and
especially liked "This Ain't No Rag, It's A Flag" and "In America".
We had a great time with them.

We saw Camp X-Ray, where the Taliban detainees are being held only
from a distance, but I picked up a lot of what's going on there from
talking with a lot of different people.

The truth of the matter is that this operation is under a microscope.
The Red Cross has an on site presence there and watches everything
that goes on very closely. The media is not telling you the whole
truth about what's going on over there. The truth is that these scum
bags are not only being treated humanely, but they are probably better
off healthwise and medically than they've ever been in their lives.
They are fed well, able to take showers and receive state of the art
medical care. And have their own Moslem chaplain. I saw several of
them in a field hospital ward where they were being treated in a state
of the art medical facility.

Now let's talk about the way they treat our people. First of all, they
have to be watched constantly. These people are committed and wanton
murderers who are willing to die just to kill someone else. One of the
doctors told me that when they had Taliban in the hospital the staff
had to really be careful with needles, pens and anything else which
could possibly be used as a weapon. They also throw their excrement
and urine on the troops who are guarding them. And our guys and gals
have shown great restraint in not retaliating. We are spending over a
million dollars a day maintaining and guarding these nasty killers and
anyone who wants to see them brought to the U.S.A. for trial is either
out of their heads or a lawyer looking for money and notoriety. Or

I wish that the media and the Red Cross and all the rest of the
people who are so worried about these criminals would realize that
this is not a troop of errant Boy Scouts. These are killers of the
worst kind. They don't need protection from us, we need protection
from them. If you don't get anything else out of this soapbox, please
try to realize that when you see news coverage much of the time
you're not getting the whole story, but an account filtered through a
liberal mindset with an agenda.

We have two fights on our hands, the war against terror and the one
against the loudmouthed lawyers and left wing media who would sap the
strength from the American public by making us believe that we're
losing the war or doing something wrong in fighting it. Remember these
are the same people who told us that Saddam Hussein's Republican guard
was going to be an all but invincible enemy and that our smart bombs
and other weapons were not really as good as the military said that
they were.

They also took up for Bill Clinton while he was cavorting around the
Oval office with Monica Lewinsky while the terrorists were gaining
strength and bombing our Embassies and dragging the bodies of dead
American heroes around the dusty streets of Somalia. It's a shame that
we can't have an unbiased media who would just report the truth and
let us make up our own minds.

Here I must commend Fox News for presenting both sides much better
than the other networks. They are leaving the other cable networks in
the dust. People like being told the truth.

Our military not only needs but deserves our support. Let's give it to them.

The next time you read a media account about the bad treatment of the
Taliban in Cuba, remember what I told you. Been there done that.

Footnote: I got an e-mail from a rather irate first cousin of mine the
other day who has a daughter who's a lawyer and she seemed to think
that I was painting all lawyers with the same brush. Please understand
that I'm not doing that at all. That would be like saying that all
musicians were drug addicts. There are a lot of good and honest
attorneys out there. I happen to have one of them. But it seems that
they never get any airtime. It's always the radicals who get their
opinions heard, who fight the idea of the military tribunals and cite
The Constitution and the integrity of America as their source of
justifying their opinions. Well, first of all The Constitution says
"We the people of the United States", it doesn't mention any other

And secondly as far as integrity is concerned, I don't think some of
these folks would know integrity if it bit them in the posterior.

What do you think? God Bless America.

Charlie Daniels

P.S. send this to everyone you can...the truth needs to be told. THE

I notice you posted on Words on a Page that we are in Iraq because they attacked us.

Uh....when did Iraq ever attack us?

Just curious about what you are talking about
