“These are the Worst of a Very Bad Lot”

Remember when Rumsfeld said the Guantanamo detainees were “among the most dangerous, best trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth” ?

Well, we’re letting 141 of them go because “they pose no threat to U.S. security,” so I guess they’ve been rehabilitated. Hooray!

I’m reminded of a well-known quotation…I can’t remember it exactly, so I’ll paraphrase:

Give a man a beating and you subdue him for a day. Give a man many beatings, deface his holy book, menace him with dogs, smear him with fake menstrual blood, threaten to rape his children, and shove a banana up his ass, and you subdue him for a lifetime.

Or something like that…

“So Long, and Thanks for All the Fists!”
