I'd like to see them try and spin this

As if it wasn't already getting more and more difficult to be an anti-war protestor in the States with all the newly translated Iraqi document coming out proving, without the shadow of a doubt, Saddam's connections with both terrorism in general and Al-Qaida in particular (linking to Captain's Quarters since he's been tracking the various memos as they come out), now comes word that even those young boys that were held prisoner at Gitmo actually miss their time there.

The fact that this report was posted a month two years ago at The Guardian and this is the first anyone's really heard of it tells you a lot about the MSM's fixation on all the negative stories they can find.

Statements like;
"Americans are polite and friendly when you speak to them. They are not rude like Afghans. If I could be anywhere, I would be in America. I would like to be a doctor, an engineer or an American soldier."
paint a slightly different picture of the treatment of underage prisoners than the one most anti-war groups would like to portray. Although I'm sure someone out there is trying to find a way to redefine torture to include the fact that they didn't get to go snorkeling as much as they would have liked to.

If it wasn't posted on the Guardian's website I'd swear it was just Iowahawk trying to write a more serious sounding satire.

Update:
Corrected date references. Article date is actually from 2 years ago making the MSMs silence even more deafening.
