Congratulations! You, the taxpayer, have just completed financing a beautiful new soccer field – at Guantanamo Bay? The finishing touches are now being completed on ‘Gitmo’s’ third recreational area – a $750,000 soccer field. That’s right. In a time of record-breaking deficit spending the U.S. government has decided to spend exorbitant amounts of money on some amenities to make the terror suspects awaiting trial ‘Gitmo’ a little more comfortable.
And, as if that weren’t enough, along with the world-class soccer field, more upgrades have been added, as well. Flat-screen television sets have been installed complete with dozens of cable channels along with a library of DVDs to choose from. Also available for the honored guests – I mean, fanatical terrorists – are newspapers from around the world, a large library from which to borrow books, and an array of “enrich your life classes”. That’s right, just in case their life is not rich enough, patrons – uh, prisoners – can now learn to paint, take writing classes, and receive instruction on how to handle their personal finances. Oh, and the currently-held detainees can also expect the construction on their brand new hospital to be completed in the near future.
The Guantanamo Bay detainment and interrogation facility has been the center of a lot of controversy since 2008. At the beginning of his term, President Obama promised to close ‘Gitmo’ within a year. He has obviously reneged on that promise and, instead, has decided that the detainees being held there should be given the opportunity to sharpen their soccer skills and hone their watercolor techniques.
Thanks to the Obama administration, the 10 year-old prison facility used to house world-renowned terror suspects has undergone the largest expansion ever. And what about the projected cost for maintaining the fresh new additions? Hard-working American taxpayers can expect to pay about $140 million annually for the new and improved “Gitmo”. Now, the terror suspects being held at Guantanamo Bay can plan their next mass murder attempt in a luxurious, leisurely environment.
