Bands Complain That Their Music Was Used For Torture At Gitmo
The bands REM and Pearl Jam are pissed that their music has been used as torture on the detainees at Guantanamo Bay Cuba.
NEWS FLASH: Their music IS torture. To stay consistent, removing the music from Gitmo would mean that it'd have to be removed from the US airways as well. In fact that should be the priority. How many more people are tortured by this garbage when they enter a grocery store or accidentally flip the fm dial to a rock station than the 250 at Guantanamo? Most of the time the music is used not to punish but to keep terrorists from communicating.
Detainees have it pretty good there anyway. Three squares a day that are halal approved that the cook has to jump through hoops to get, prayer rugs, and prosthetics. Yeah you read that right. In 2001, Abdullah Massoud was sent to Gitmo and fitted with a prosthetic leg on the taxpayer's dime. And did you know that the average detainee gains 20 lbs?
Those terrorists have it better than I do.
