Lt.Col. Gordon Cucullu was part of a Department of Defense trip to the Joint Task Force - Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. And he maintains that there IS indeed a great amount of abuse occurring there. Actions are being taken against human beings that just shouldn't be countenanced under any circumstances.

Here's what he had to say:"Our group went to GITMO to check out tales that the military was being too tough on these terrorist detainees. We left convinced that America is being extraordinarily lenient – far too lenient."

"After speaking with soldiers, sailors, and civilians who collectively staff Gitmo, I left convinced that abuse definitely exists at the detention facilities, and it typically fails to receive the press attention it deserves: it’s the relentless, merciless attacks on American servicemen and women by these terrorist thugs."

"We dined with the soldiers, toured several of the individual holding camps, observed interrogations, and inspected cells. We were impressed by the universally high quality of the cadre and the facilities. While it may not be exactly “Club GITMO,” as Rush Limbaugh uses to tweak the hard-Left critics who haven’t a clue about reality here, GITMO is a far cry from the harshness experienced even by maximum security prisoners in the U.S."

Col. Cucullu concludes with: "You are right to worry about inhumane treatment taking place at GITMO. But your concern should be for the dedicated, well-trained, highly professional American men and women who are subjected to a daily barrage of feces, urine, semen, and spit hurled at them along with vile invective as they implement a humane, enlightened system of confinement on men who want nothing more than to kill Americans. These quiet professional Americans, who live under the motto “Honor Bound for Defense of Freedom,” deserve our utmost respect and concern. Shame on anyone who slanders or disrespects them for short-term and short-sighted political advantage."

I suggest that Sen's. Durbin and Pelosi take a prisoner or two into their own custody and see how THEY would handle them. Given the type of people these detainees are, I think we'd soon be two moonbat Senators short.
