Today's Must-Read: John Kass Puts Gitmo in Perspective
Answering his critics who were upset that he made fun of Time's Gitmo horror tales cover story, with its revelations that Christina Aguilera is used as a 'torture' tool, John Kass joins the growing number of people who are coming forward to counter the media's torture narrative in the best possible way, by turning the Left's tactic of equating Gitmo with Gulag into a side by side comparison that reveals the intellectual bankruptcy of such a concept. Kass has more right to make this comparison than most of us; his own father was tortured as a POW in World War II, enduring daily beatings and being forced to dig his own grave. He survived, thankfully.
