Even amid the Middle East turmoil, calls to shut down the American detention camp at Guantanamo Bay continue. Certainly we’ve all heard the stories: people not having access to showers for weeks after arrival, then having rocks, urine and feces hurled at them, plus getting spat in the face and even ear-bitten—all the while unable to do anything in response. And that’s just the U.S. soldiers stationed there.

No one ever mentions the hypocritical element in Democrats calling to close the facility, considering all their fretting over the environment: think about all the free radicals that would be released!
