Interlude 1: Things That Make You Go ... WTF?

According to a recent report from the Pentagon, detainees released from Guantanamo Bay are either returning to their terrorist roots or are becoming terrorists.


Gee whiz. I wonder why. Surely they could follow the behavioral example our own convicts have shown after being released from our maximum security facilities. Oh, wait. Do we even do that? Oh. Well it does happen. People get released from lesser secure facilities. They could follow that example, for sure. All those ex-cons who are released are so full of love with law enforcement and government. I am never surprised when I see another article on the net or in the newspaper where ex-cons have held bake sales in order to supplement the funding of their local enforcement. My wall is literally littered with clippings of ex-cons bringing pies and cupcakes they made to the local precinct or town hall. Rehabilitation through isolation, shower-rape, and joining a prison-run gang where you get to lift weights all day works miracles.

And that doesn't even begin to address the rehabilitation power of torture, starvation, and humiliation. Wow, I'm surprised these guys didn't just head out and build houses for Habitat For Humanity. What are they thinking?

And we all know taking up arms against the United States in your homeland automatically makes you a terrorist. Even if you're only terrorizing the troops with roadside bombs and rocket-propelled grenades.

Surely, they may strap bombs to themselves in the future and charge into K-mart, but until they do, lets refrain from using the melodrama, OK?
