CommunityPam's House Blend

This just in from the Dept. of the Obvious – Abu Ghraib fuels Muslim hatred of U.S.

Obviously no one has bothered to tell them about the fabulous meals and that it’s only “a few bad apples” you have to worry about.

House Blenders: “Radical” Russ is your barista for the next few days while Pam is on vacation for her anniversary.

The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) just released a report from its human rights representative, Belgian senate president Anne-Marie Lizin. Guess what they have to say about Abu Ghraib?

(Reuters) “A generation of young Muslims, fed on the images of Abu Ghraib, of the treatment reserved for the Guantanamo detainees and rumours about profanation of the Koran, will have filled the al Qaeda ranks and those of other extremist groups,” said the report made public on Friday.

“The longer the detention is in the camps the more the hatred against the U.S. and the West becomes anchored in hearts and minds,” it said.

“Being fully aware of the U.S. authorities’ dilemma between national and world security and long procedures, we recommend terminating the Guantanamo detention facility by announcing a calendar of closure.”

Of course, OSCE may not understand one detail: that may be the administration’s goal. Can’t very well have a Global War on Terror without any terrorists, can we?
