If you think providing Osama bin Laden with an obsequious Islamic funeral at sea instead of feeding his corpse to pigs was irritating, how about this — at Club Gitmo, our flag is hidden away lest it offend the terrorists vacationing there. Richard Miniter, author of the new book Mastermind: The Many Faces of the 9/11 Architect, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, reports to Big Peace:Vince Lombardi said it best.
I was stunned to learn while researching Mastermind that Guantanamo detainees succeeded in convincing prison officials to no longer raise the American flag anywhere they could see it. Each morning on every U.S. military base around the world, the American flag is raised to a bugle. But in the interests of not offending the detainees, it was stopped at Guantanamo.The more we pander to these savages, the more we bow to their evil god and efface ourselves and crawl around on our bellies in the name of "sensitivity," the more weakness they will smell, the more they will attack us.
