Douglas V. Gibbs who blogs at Political Pistachio opines the some things are very hard to understand or believe and must be really confusing to the radical islamist captured by American soldiers. He writes:
"It must be very hard for our enemies to fully understand American liberals.
Try to put yourself in their shoes for a moment: First, you are captured on the battlefield where you are trying to kill U.S. soldiers.
Then you are imprisoned at GITMO and immediately provided expert medical attention and better nutrition than ever before.
Soon lawyers from some of Washington 's most prestigious law firms offer to represent you free of charge.
Then a president is elected who went to a "church" for 20 years whose "pastor" loved to shout "God Damn America" from the pulpit.
Finally, you are told that the president intends to release you inside the country you dream will be destroyed some day,
and the Director of National Intelligence wants you to be paid a stipend by those dreadful infidel taxpayers so that you can adjust to your new life.
And just last week, that same president was floating the idea of taking away some health benefits from the soldiers who captured you! And begins talking about them becoming terrorists." (Source)
Truth is indeed stranger than fiction especially in these times.
