The Library at Guantanamo

Posted by on Thu, May 2, 2013 at 7:28 AM

Prisoners are never free to go, even when they have been given release orders years ago, even when they are starving themselves to death.

But they are free to read Standup Paddling magazine and play Angry Birds.

Here's New York Times reporter Charlie Savage's blog entirely devoted to the library at Guantanamo.

I was disappointed to see what "Stand Up Paddling" turned out to be about...

I love anti-guantanamo sentiment when the prison situation in the US right NOW is equal to or worse than any of histories atrocities. Sure, it used to be that we just hung you and called it good but now it's a lifetime of "slow boiling frog" torture for an increasingly gigantic chunk of our population. I'll spare you the 19th century statistical comparisons. progress
