Illinois Senator Dick Durbin says Gitmo is worse than Gulags
CHICAGO Illinois Senator Dick Durbin says he won't apologize for comments comparing American interrogators at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Nazis, Pol Pot and Soviet gulags, 50 million people were killed by the Nazis, Pol Pot, Soviet's and China, but what were doing in Gitmo is worse, were making them eat honey-glazed chicken or lemon-baked fish, served with whole wheat pita, various vegetables and fruit.
He also noted that the detainees are provided copies of the Quran, prayer rugs, beads, and oil, the call to prayer is broadcast five times a day and the cells have signs pointing toward Mecca, the direction observant Muslims face when praying and the library is stocked with Jihadi books but he noted there are no Starbucks to sip their coffee while they read.

Senator Dick Durbin went on to explain that each detainee's cell has a sink installed low to the ground, to make it easier for the detainees to wash their feet before Muslim prayer, but he ask why can't our military personal wash the detainee's feet so they won't have to bend over.
