Zone of Reality: Castro Notes

By Rich Kozlovich

For many of my readers I won’t have to explain why I despise the media. There is more than sufficient reason to hold them in the utter contempt. They have a serious lack of moral fiber. If the people you deal with in your daily life acted with such a lack of integrity; how long would you continue to associate with them? If you owned a business would you continue to deal with them? I doubt it; so why do we listen to these propagandists of the left? If ever there was an issue that highlights the lack of moral foundation, the lack of consistency and the lack of integrity within the media, this issue regarding Guantanamo prisoners surely is it.

Many of them never look outside their little echo chamber of self congratulating head nodders. Many of them are afraid to do so. Many aren’t bright enough to do so, and many of them have no idea what they are talking about. They really have no reason to be in that business if you hold them to the same standard they hold everyone else…and by the standard by which they were supposedly educated.

Then again….perhaps we really need to get this. In the history of journalism have they ever demonstrated any of the qualities I have outlined? So just because they went to some school for journalism why should we expect them to be any different now? We shouldn’t!

Guantánamo Prison Horrors
By Humberto Fontova

"We lived surrounded by rats, cockroaches, scorpions -- and I have to say it -- with human excrement, yes, with excrement ... dengue and tuberculosis ravaged the prisoners. Forty prisoners were crammed into cells measuring 32 square feet."
- Julio Galvez

"I lived in total darkness with my hands tied; with rats and cockroaches and excrement everywhere. That was all I could smell."
- Lester Gonzalez

"Many prisoners attempted suicide. I saw prisoners stick needles in the dark part of their eye. I saw prisoners roll themselves in foam mattresses and set themselves alight, prisoners who inject excrement and urine into their eyes, prisoners who inject petrol into their private parts and other places just so they will be attended to."
- Normando Hernandez.

"I spent 17 months of solitary confinement in a four-by-four-meter cell."
- Jose Luis Paneque

Okay, okay, by now you've noticed the quotes are followed by Spanish surnames. So allow me to apologize for my deceptive article title. But it's mostly accurate. Guantánamo, you see, is not only the name of a U.S. military base in Cuba, but it's also the name of a Cuban province that contains 94 (Castroite) jails. And some prisoners from nearby Cuban jails (Castro's Cuba boasts from two to three hundred prisons; Batista's Cuba counted twelve) were recently forcibly deported (not "released," as the current MSM/Castroite spin claims) to Spain, where they revealed the above horrors.

These Castro prisoners' crimes?
