Gitmo, Should It Stay or Should It Go?

President Obama signed an executive order yesterday closing Guantánamo Bay in one year. So, what are they going to do with the detainees that remain? That has not been determined. An article written in the The New York Times yesterday explains the real danger that comes with releasing prisoners back to their homeland. A former Gitmo detainee, Said Ali al-Shihri, is now the deputy leader of Al Qaeda’s Yemeni branch.

NY Times stated:
However, under a heading describing reasons for Mr. Shihri’s possible release from Guantánamo, the documents say he claimed that he traveled to Iran “to purchase carpets for his store” in Saudi Arabia. They also say that he denied knowledge of any terrorists or terrorist activities, and that he “related that if released, he would like to return to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, wherein he would reunite with his family.”

“The detainee stated he would attempt to work at his family’s furniture store if it is still in business,” the documents say.

Shocker! Even after attending the rehabilitation program for former jihadists, They Still Lie!

20 Worst Supermarket Foods

Making simple, educated choices at the store can really make a difference. This is a great article on what to choose and what to pass...

Eat at your own riskBy: Matt Goulding, Men's Health

Sure, a turkey burger sounds healthy. But is it, really? Not if
you order the Bella from Ruby Tuesday, which packs a whopping 1,145 calories.
(And yes, that's before a side of fries.)
To further enlighten you on the
prevalence of preposterous portions, we spent months analyzing menus, nutrition
labels, and ingredient lists to identify the food industry's worst offenders.
Our primary criterion? Sheer caloric impact. After all, it's the top cause of
weight gain and the health problems that accompany it. (As you read, keep in
mind that 2,500 calories a day is a reasonable intake for the average guy.) We
also factored in other key nutritional data, such as excessive carbohydrates and
fat, added sugars, trans fats, and sodium. The result is our first annual list
of the worst foods in America.
Eat at your own risk.
