Lately there has been a lot of criticism in the United States about the conditions at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba. One Senator went as far as to compare the conditions there to Nazi prison camps.

This came on the heels of an Amnesty International report that likened the Guantanamo prison to the Soviet Gulags. The White House, not surprisingly, wasted no time condemning Amnesty International. Curiously, Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld had no problem with the group a couple of years when they cited Amnesty International reports about me in order to justify their invasion of my poor, defenseless nation.

So this next item ought to piss off a whole lot of people: The Pentagon has just announced that it will add room for 220 more detainees. Oh, and here's the best part: Do you know who got the $30 million contract to build this addition?


That's right. Dick Cheney's old outfit. If this doesn't send Bush's critics into an absolute tizzy, I don't know what will.
