Is the West trying to lose the war against Islamic supremacy? As the ten year anniversary of 9/11 grows nearer, I’m less optimistic with each passing day. Time and again, we are treated to tales of appeasement and just plain stupidity on the part of those in authority to whom we’ve entrusted the task.

Here’s the latest in a series of exclusive reports from Gitmo, from the generally conservative Sun media chain in Canada (which will soon, God willing, be awarded its very own tv channel, nicknamed “Fox News North” by its many pants-wetting detractors.)

There is a foosball game in Guantanamo Bay’s Camp 4 detention centre that many of the terror suspects who are locked up here found offensive.

It wasn’t the game itself. Indeed, playing foosball (a table-top soccer game) or playing soccer itself is one of the most popular activities at Camp 4, the facility that houses Canadian terror suspect Omar Khadr.

Instead, what annoyed the inmates were the faces of the foosball players.

They were too western-looking or, in some accounts, they offended some fundamentalist Islamists because of their association with idol worship.

So the U.S. military filed off the faces so that the terror suspects wouldn’t be offended.

This story is told by U.S. military guards to journalists who tour the prison facilities here. The military’s PR people are trying to turn the narrative here from one of torture and abuse to their new motto: Safe, humane, legal, and transparent. And the foosball story is part of that narrative.

What’s truly chilling is that the mental giants in charge of Gitmo PR actually encourage the telling of this pathetic tale:

This story is told by U.S. military guards to journalists who tour the prison facilities here. The military’s PR people are trying to turn the narrative here from one of torture and abuse to their new motto: Safe, humane, legal, and transparent. And the foosball story is part of that narrative.

Read the whole depressing tale of “Club Gitmo” if you dare.

We are doomed.
