Another Glowing Report on Gitmo

Hayes: Gitmo a supporting environment

"CHARLOTTE - U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes described prison conditions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on Monday as “a supporting environment” after a weekend visit to the facility that has drawn international criticism.

“The most astounding thing to me is how nice the prisoners are being treated,” said Hayes, whose 8th congressional district includes Cabarrus County.

The Republican congressman said during a news conference on the main campus of Central Piedmont Community College that American guards develop “human relationships” with the prisoners, provide prisoners with cold drinks and snacks and treat the Koran respectfully. Said Hayes, “They’re seeing we’re not like their leadership said we would be.”

See that last sentence? It refers to the way soldiers view their elected representatives. Until this visit all they had heard from some of our elected representitives (the ones the MSM likes to quote), is how "terrible of a job they were doing."

While I was in the miliary I witnessed quite a few congressional delegations. We always stood tall because we were taught that they were the one's who along with the President would send us to fight and defend this country. If you think that we didn't listen to what our Senators, Congressmen and women, said, you would be dead wrong. Their opinion counts.

Even though I've been out for fifteen years now, after a thirteen-year career, everytime I hear a Durbin or Kennedy or Pelosi call us "thugs" and "murders" and that our efforts are a "quagmire", it makes me mad, but it also hurts.

If they really cared about the troops as much as they say they do, they would watch what they say. Loose lips sink ships, they can also break a soldier's spirit. I know of no greater tragedy.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
