The Truth About Guantanamo Bay Detention Center

Once again the Dems and those who are on the Left are showing who they really are. They are showing they would rather align themselves with the terrorists and those who hate America, then to show pride towards our Country and those who serve our Country overseas in the Armed Forces.

Recently there has been a lot of news about the Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay. If you listen to the mainstream news you are hearing Democrats and those on the Left talking about how it's an evil place of torture where Americans mishandle the Quran and how we are holding the people there illegally. I would like to share with you, the readers of, some information about the Detention Center.

First of all the Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay is a holding place for America where people of interest are brought. These people may included terrorist, those who have links to terrorists, people who might be a threat to our Nation and people who have a known background related to Al Qaeda or other terrorists networks.

Once an individual is placed at Guantoanamo Bay, unlike the American and Coalition POW's in Iraq, the person is treated with great respect. He or she is proved with a Quran, a prayer bed, food that is acceptable to the Islamic religion. There is a sign provided for him or her that shows the proper direction so that they can pray towards Mecca. He or she are given honey and dates for breakfast during their holy month of Ramadan. The people in the Detention Center are allowed to gather for study of the Quran and religious services. They are medically taken care of and there over all welfare is taken care of. In fact according the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Rep. Duncan Hunter, the people at the Detention Center "have never eaten or been treated better in their lives"

Certainly this does not sounds like a place of torture where medieval devices are employed. Certainly this doesn't not line up with the picture that the Liberals and Dems are painting of the Center and certainly this place does not line up with the picture that certianly international groups try to paint.

Let us look at how American POWs have been or currently are treated. Do you think that American POW's were treated with respect during World War II? Do you think Hitler and Nazi Germany allowed the American Prisoners of War to enjoy the freedoms that we are giving to the people at the Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay? Of course not. American POWs were tortured, shot, murdered in ways that are not appropriate to detail in this article. How about Korea or Vietnam? Do you think the American POWs where given a turkey feast on Thanksgiving and a ham  dinner on Christmas? Of coarse not. Many of them we not given food or water in the hopes that they would crack and share American secrets. Many of them were tortured to death because they would not share American secrets with the people that were holding them as POWs. What about in Iraq? Are American and Coalition POWs given Bibles, rosaries, crosses to wear and the freedom to celebrate communion? Of coarse not, they are tortured and then many of them are slaughtered in the most awful ways.

Is the Detention Center at Guatanamo Bay perfect? Of course not. Could the Center be looked at and reform brought? Possibly. Should we align ourselves with the prisoners that are there? No. Should we listen to the International Anti-America groups? No. Should we support the President and his administration and their agenda in Nation Security? Of coarse!

Let us stop listening to the voice of naysayers.
