Terrorists live in Luxury at Guantanamo Bay

American troops treat them better than they are treated, while liberal politicians keep demanding more rights for the accused

I am back home from my whirlwind tour to Guantanamo Bay to give thanks to our military men and women on duty there. We were honored to bring them new movies on DVD, Oreo cookies, Christmas and Hanukkah cards, MAF commemorative t-shirts and plenty of hugs. For the second year in a row Move America Forward was able to spend part of the Christmas holidays with our great military men and women. Last year it was almost two weeks in Iraq, and this year we were in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

It disturbed me to see how well the terrorists are being treated, and then have to put up with liberal politicians attacking our troops. As one of the soldiers said to me, "It makes us sick when people tell lies about what we do. We are proud to represent America and we do NOTHING to shame our command in chief or the American people." Well, we are more than happy to tell the truth to the American people, which is a job the mainstream media has largely neglected.

Please help Move America Forward tell the story of our U.S. troops to the American public. We need your financial support to keep going. Please click here:


The worst comment from an American politician came from Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin. Here is what he said:

"If I ... didn't tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners [At Guantanamo] in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets In their gulags, or some mad regime, Pol Pot, or others that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners." (PBS' "The Newshour," 6/17/05)

In reality, the terrorists have better accommodations than our troops. They live in air conditioned state-of-the art new buildings; they have more recreation time than American school children; they get prayer rugs and Qurans, which no non-Muslim U.S. soldier can even touch. They get six different menus to choose from; among their offerings are Baked Tandouri Chicken Breast, Mustard-Dill Baked Fish, Lyonnaise Rice, and Fish Amandine. I don't remember seeing that on the menu at Nazi concentration camps or in Soviet gulags. I doubt Pol Pot offered them in the killing fields of Cambodia.

Or, how about this comment in the Congressional Record by Vermont U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy:

"Now that may sound like an experience from some oppressive and authoritarian regime, something that may have happened under the Taliban, something that Saddam Hussein might have ordered or in the fiction of Kafka." (Congressional Record, 9/28/06, p. S10356)

It is just disgusting what some American politicians are willing to say to appeal to the far left anti-military crowd in the United States. When terrorists decided to smash their TV and the TV room because a Palmolive soap commercial came on that revealed a woman's arm, what do you think our response was? Yes, we got them a new flat screen TV - although this time it is encased in hard Plexiglas so they couldn't destroy it again. Let me put it to you this way: if you children destroyed your family TV because they were mad about something, how long would it take for you to buy them a new one? Or, is a better question, how long will it be before they turn 21 and can buy their own?

The talk we hear from President-elect Obama about closing Guantanamo is ridiculous. In addition to the detention facility, it plays an important part of refueling for the 4th Fleet and in drug interdiction. Instead of junketing around the world, some of these politicians should come down to Gitmo and see for themselves before they start spouting off. With all due respect, I would recommend President-Elect Obama cut his Hawaiian vacation short and head down to Gitmo to see and thank the troops himself before he decides to move some of the terrorist killers to our shores.

Even though we are only a day away from Christmas, many people still have not purchased their care packages for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. We decided to keep packing and sending them throughout the rest of the month. So this will still give you an opportunity to say thank you to our troops during the holidays.

The goal of our nationwide tour was to travel across America and encourage Americans to sponsor care packages for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Please click here to sponsor care packages for our deserving troops:

Move America Forward and 12 Days of Christmas

As a special holiday treat Move America Forward will mark our 12 Days of Christmas by chronicling the gifts that American troops have given to us since the first days of our Great Country. Each day we will tell the story of that gift and why we must celebrate our troops.

“On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, Our Soldiers Gave to Us . . .
Safety from Terrorists !!!”

Following the brutal attacks of Sept.11, 2001, men and women marched down and signed up to protect America from her enemy: radical Muslim jihadists. It was the worst attack ever on American soil.

Americans from every corner of life stood up as one against the murderers who took 3,000 innocents that day. But as some Americans got tired of the war, our brave troops continued the fight to keep us safe. Even as politicians and others criticize our troops, claiming that the troops have lost the war in Iraq, our brave American men and women put their lives on the line to protect us.

They do not forget. They have lived the worst: the war, thousands of miles away from home, and have seen their buddies give up their lives to protect our country. But our troops don't quit because true Americans aren't quitters. These military men and women are the best we have, and we at MAF will never forget

Move America Forward marks the Days of Christmas by highlighting some of the gifts our soldiers, Marines, airmen, coasties, sailors have given us since the beginning of our great country.

The veterans of World War II and the Americans who worked to keep the country safe as Nazis and Imperialists plotted our overthrow are called "The Greatest Generation." This generation of troops, who have protected America and fought against radical Muslim Jihadists since that infamous day of Sept. 11, 2001, are "The Generous Generation of Selfless American Heroes."

American troops all volunteer. They give their lives to protect you and me. They sacrifice in extreme ways. So today, on the Eleventh Day of Christmas, MAF salutes them for their work keeping America safe from terrorists.

America's homeland has not been hit again since Osama bin Laden's maniacal murderers attacked on 9/11. We owe this safety to our troops and our intelligence services under the leadership of the Commander-in-Chief…


Our men and women today, and during every war, have continued to defend our security. We have to continue to defend and support them. There is no better way than by sending a care package of goodies that they will really appreciate.

Most important, you can write your own personal note to an individual military man or woman in Iraq or Afghanistan. Your personal comments will go with the care package. Our troops can get lonely during the holidays. They are thousands of miles away from their families and their homes in America. Your personal note will lift their spirits during the holidays.


SlantRight Editor: I left out a lot of the buzzes and whistles of the Move America Forward email. There was an abundance of pictures showing the compassion of American troops. There were multiple requests for donations interspersed through out the email and a number of fund raising ads for merchandise. Move America Forward is a worthy cause for its support of foreign troops not only at home but also providing amenities of personal use. You can go to the Move America Forward website if you are inspired to be a financial partner with MAF.
