Uighurs Tell FNC: Better Human Rights at Guantanamo Than in China
So, there's a new angle for the media: Guantanamo as a bastion of human rights protections. Not really much of a surprise in contrast to China, but it took a FNC reporter to frame the comparison between a U.S. military-run detention center and a communist nation.
From Herridge's piece on the Monday, June 15 Special Report with Bret Baier:
CATHERINE HERRIDGE: They say the worst moment at Gitmo came when the U.S. allowed Chinese interrogators to question them.
INTERPRETER: They were really harsh. They were threatening them.
HERRIDGE: Camp Iguana, the camp with the least restrictions, was the men's most recent home. Asked which was worse: Life at Gitmo versus China?
INTERPRETER: Of course it's China. There's no guarantee for human rights there.
