And they want to close Gitmo?

Many Democrats and their allies on the loony left want to close down the terrorist detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, because the international community has become convinced that all sorts of really bad things happen there. This, of course, ignores the fact that the terrorists are treated at least 1.5 million times better than pro-Democracy activists in the rest of Cuba.

Setting that aside, here's example #5,826 why we shouldn't listen to the critics:

An al-Qaeda operative serving life in prison for his role in the bombing of American embassies in Africa contends that his rights are being violated by U.S. jailers who have denied him access to Arabic publications and religious books, limited his mail privileges, and no longer allow him to use a Walkman.

The aforementioned "operative" (read: terrorist) is Mohamed Al-Owhali and he was convicted of participating in the bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa in 1998 leaving 224 dead and thousands injured.

Now imagine multiplying this problem by hundreds, with "human rights" activists egging them on.

Supreme Court: “The Second Amendment is not a second class right. States can’t use subjective criteria when issuing carry permits.”
California: “But what if we added in illegal viewpoint discrimination, and violated the First Amendment at the same time?”
