Where the Tweets Have No Name

This number seems awfully high, but even if off by an order of magnitude represents a horrific prison system:

At least 60,000 people have died in Syrian government prisons over the past five years from torture or due to dire humanitarian conditions, including a lack of food, a monitor said Saturday.

The head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group, Rami Abdel Rahman, said he compiled the toll from regime sources.

But given the high casualties overall in the war, perhaps not.

Yet where is the global outrage?

What's that? Nothing?

Keep this story about Assad's murder camps in mind when the global Left releases its latest Twitter blast about America's Guantanamo Bay detention facility where we hold actual terrorists--whose comrades in the wild still try to kill us--whose biggest threat is gaining weight because of too much rice pilaf in their culturally sensitive diets.

Yeah, Gitmo is the prison that the compassionate class cares passionately about closing.
