United States officials protecting foreign nationals from abuse at the hands of their own governments.
A long-running effort by the Bush administration to send home many of the terror suspects held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has been stymied in part because of concern among United States officials that the prisoners may not be treated humanely by their own governments, officials said.
Concerned with humane treatment, the Bush administration provides all detained foreign nationals with protective eye, ear and mouth gear as well as hats and gloves to provide warmth during the cruel Cuban winters. And summers.
To help ease the loneliness some foreign nationals may feel after years of seperation from their friends, families and countries of origin, all detainees are provided with pets.
Prisoners put on pageants!
And participate in team sports.
And they recieve the finest health care in the world.
"It is kind of ironic that the U.S. government is placing conditions on other countries that it would not follow itself in Guantánamo or Abu Ghraib," said a Middle Eastern diplomat from one of the countries involved in the talks. He asked not to be named to avoid criticizing the United States in the name of his government, as well as to avoid a head bag and a crotch full of German shepherds.
It isn't ironic. It's the Bush administration. There's nothing ironic about it.
