…which is fine, because it might be the most hilariously terrifying piece of journalism I’ve read in possibly ever (thanks to the senator, not Debs). Here’s an excerpt:
Solomon: You have also been a vocal critic of the president’s plans to close the naval base at Guantánamo and to try some suspected terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court, in New York.
Inhofe: I’ve been to Gitmo. Why don’t you go? I’d like to invite you. You know, I consider Gitmo a real resource. The people there are treated probably better than they are in the prisons in America. They have more doctors and medical practitioners per inmate. They’re eating better than anyone has ever eaten before.
You think the detainees at Guantánamo eat better than you do?
I’m talking about before they got in there, what they ate back in Yemen or wherever they came from. One of the big problems is they become obese when they get here because they’ve never eaten that good before. Can you tell me one reason to close Gitmo?
Because it’s on foreign soil, where prisoners don’t have the same legal rights as prisoners tried here, and we want to apply the same laws to everybody.
You want to apply the same laws to terrorists that are captured as you do to criminals in America?
Because we have to take the high road as Americans.
I see. That’s an interesting concept.
