The Horrors of Rice Pilaf Do End Eventually

Along with the horrors of rice pilaf, weight gain, bad pop music, and air conditioning stuck on high, we are assured by our Leftish brethren (and sisters, too, to keep in the spirit of the whole thing) that those lost innocent souls languishing in Guantanamo have no hope to ever leave that place other than with a toe tag.

Even if true, I find it hard to work up a real tear over their fate without pulling out a nose hair, but perhaps that's just me.

But it isn't true at all, of course, thet the detainees have no hope of leaving healthy and a little heavier. There is review, and many hopelessly incarcerated prisoners do go home. One darling recently left, in fact:

With this transfer, approximately 310 detainees have departed Guantanamo for other countries, including Albania, Afghanistan, Australia, Bahrain, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Maldives, Morocco, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom, and Yemen.

Our dead from 9/11 and the war remain dead, but these alleged scum do get to leave if proven not totally scummy. Some may even be completely innocent. Some return home to fight us.

But still, they do eat rice pilaf a lot. So our Left can complain about something in Gitmo.
