Huckabee Says Detainees Being Treated Fairly at Guantanamo

APRIL 25, 2006 - Posted at 8:16 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee says Muslim inmates at the Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainee camp in Cuba are getting food that takes account of their religious beliefs, and their cells are marked with an arrow toward Mecca so they can pray in that direction.

Huckabee said yesterday, after returning from a trip to the camp, that the prisoners are being treated fairly by the U.S. government.

Huckabee said in a message posted at his Web site that he now has an intense respect for the men and women serving the country at the facility.  He said the detainees they deal with are extremely dangerous, and make their feelings toward our country loudly known.  He said the detainees speak openly about their delight in the 2001 terrorist attacks, and their support for other terrorist actions against this country.
