Those wild wack rumours about that terrible konzentrationslager located at Great Satan's Naval/Teufel Hunden protuberance in sunny, sunny Guantanamo have been annihilated as surely as hot gossip against dramatic lift.
As best understood -- 44 featured two points about closing Guantanamo:
Gitmo diminishes Great Satan's standing in world opinion and serves as a magnet for Great Satan haters to pick up an AK and join the Haj.
"And Guantanamo is probably the number one recruitment tool that is used by these jihadist organizations. And we see it in the websites that they put up. We see it in the messages that they're delivering.
And that is significant. Especially so since most Americans don't really give a flying flip and 44's 2 year Epic Fail quest to degitmoise overseas contingency ops has flopped faster than now repentant droneophobes that previously worried about the wrong thing
Americans know we are at war. They don’t want Gitmo alum on holy turf and have nary a care in the world 'bout those magical 4 Ever Detentions. They aren’t embarrassed by Great Satan, by her soldiers in the field, or by their public servants striving to keep them safe.
Super savvy historian and all around super fly smart guy Arthur Herman has the best Gitmo Myth Deconstruction piece out there - essential reading -- that shows how the myth of Great Satan tormenting hapless innocents and bikini waxing herself (and friends) with their hot innocent blood as a globalized policy - became accepted narrative.
Only now - thanks to those daemoneoconic Nat'l Secperts - the accepted narrative gets all hot and bothered!
"...If Gitmo is such a hot! recruiting tool, then why cause al Qaeda’s leaders rarely mention it?
"...Instead, al Qaeda’s leaders repeatedly focus on a narrative that has dominated their propaganda for the better part of two decades. According to bin Laden, Zawahiri, and other al Qaeda chieftains, there is a Zionist-Crusader conspiracy against m"Hammedists. Relying on this deeply paranoid and conspiratorial worldview, al Qaeda routinely calls upon m"Hammedists to take up arms against Jews and Christians, as well as any kindred rulers who refuse to fight this imaginary coalition.
"...This theme forms the backbone of al Qaeda’s messaging – not Guantanamo.
"...To illustrate this point, consider the results of some basic keyword searches. Guantanamo is mentioned a mere 7 times in the 34 messages reviewed. (Again, all 7 of those references appear in just 3 of 34 messages.)
"...By way of comparison, all of the following keywords are mentioned far more frequently: Israel/Israeli/Israelis (98 mentions), Jew/Jews (129), Zionist(s) (94), Palestine/Palestinian (200), Gaza (131), and Crusader(s) (322) (Note: Zioneoconazi chicanery is often hooked up with Crusaderism in aQspeak).
Natch, aQ cats tend to fo fo focus on the wars in AfPAK (333 mentions) and Iraq (157). Land of the Pure (331), which is home to the j!hadist hydra, is prominently prominent, too. aQ has the hots on all 3 of these partic nation/states and pleads for voltiguerres to fight Great Satan and her posse there. Keywords related to other 7th Century shadow of the blade theatres also feature way more prominently than Gitmo, like Somaliland (67 mentions), Yemen (18) and Chechnya (15).
"...Simply put, there is no evidence in the messages reviewed that al Qaeda’s leaders are using Guantanamo as a recruiting tool.
Whoa! Despite some clever pretzel logic - the Gitmo gotcha guys fail to truly appreciate any of that.
Fact is - more journalists have been waterboarded than real live terrorists have.
Which may deconstruct another myth - that Enhanced Interrogation Techs are torture.
Never heard of any journalists volunteering to have their fingernails ripped out or have irons bungee corded to their bodies.
