Gitmo Horrors Continue: Detainees Limited to One Ice Cream

When the jack-booted era of Bush/Cheney came to a close I thought such human rights nightmares had ended, but apparently this kind of thing is still allowed in a so-called civilized society. Let’s just call it what it really is: Dairyboarding!

Detainees’ diets at Guantanamo Bay have been a controversial issue for some time and now the U.S. prison is said to be rationing ice cream.

The frozen dessert is allegedly being tightly measured, with only one ice cream allowed for each of its 147 detainees.

Journalist for The Miami Herald, Carol Rosenberg, photographed a refrigerator at Guantanamo, with two signs reading ‘DETAINEE FOOD ONLY’ and ‘Only 1 Ice Cream For each detainee!’

Even worse, Gitmo insiders tell me that if a detainee is thought to have information that could save lives, they’re threatened with being denied Magic Shell for up to a week. I’ve even heard that a US soldier once forced a detainee to watch as he tried to flush a pint of Chunky Monkey down a toilet, though I have yet to confirm that.

How must it makes detainees feel every time they see the US president, who not only promised to close Gitmo but to also declare life necessities such as ice cream to be a human right, publicly mocking those suffering under Gitmo’s frozen dessert limit:


Unbelievably cruel taunting.

This isn’t the Hope & Change I didn’t vote for.
