The 400 or so detainees at Joint Task Force detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have received approximately 500 holiday greeting cards, said Army Col. Lora Tucker, a spokeswoman for the prison.It's probably a safe bet that a lot of the cards contain sentiments along the lines of "I hope you rot, are set on fire, drawn and quartered while burning, and fed to the iguanas." But given the mindset of some of our loonier citizens, I'm sure there are plenty of cards wishing them a joyous holiday season.
She said she did not know the faith content of the cards sent to the mainly Muslim detention population, because "Once it goes to the detainee, it's the detainee's mail."
Naturally, CAIR has to speak up...they're seeing Christian Extremists at work:
"If the message is religiously appropriate in terms of being an actual greeting card, if that's what they're intended to do, then that's one thing," Hooper said.
But "if there's an orchestrated effort to somehow proselytize the detainees, I think that would be inappropriate in that they are in a captive situation."
