Wait, Gitmo’s still open?
From Fox News:
At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches — at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.
The project was the highlight of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters at the facility covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.
The project began in April 2011 and is due to finish this spring. The detainees will now have three recreation facilities at Camp 6, which is home to “highly compliant” detainees who live in a communal setting.
If the project takes longer than expected to complete, the detainees can expect a profuse apology from the Obama administration.
Sources tell me that detainees are also being allowed to produce a movie about their love of soccer, entitled “Bend it Like Khalid.”
