Guantanamo inmates are being fed to lions

Here's something the local news media won't report:

Red Cross: Gitmo Conditions Better:
"Conditions for detainees at the US military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have improved "considerably" over the past four years, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross said Tuesday."

Guantanamo better than Belgian prisons:
"-Inmates at Guantanamo Bay prison are treated better than in Belgian jails, an expert for Europe's biggest security organization said on Monday after a visit to the controversial U.S. detention center" -ABC News

And in case someone missed this remarkable turn:
"In all, 558 people were named in the list provided by the Pentagon on Wednesday in response to a Freedom of Information lawsuit by The Associated Press. They were among the first swept up in the U.S. global war on terrorism for suspected links to al-Qaida or the Taliban."

Be sure to notice this:

"At the level of the detention facilities, it is a model prison, where people are better treated than in Belgian prisons," said Grignard."

So there are places where prisoners are not treated so well

I don't know about you, but I personally wouldn't give a rats ass if Belgian gangsters had harder time than me in Guantanamo. At least they got the justice by being duefully processed through the criminal justice system with all checks and balances while I got dick all. The question here is not, and has never really been, about the facilities but the avoidance of law by Americans. Surely your sense of fair play and common decency allows at least this much?
