Wrong Again!… Joy Reid Tells Her Audience During Bush Era, “We Were Starving GITMO Prisoners”
On her MSNBC show on Saturday, Joy Reid claimed that “during the Bush era, we were . . . starving people in Guantanamo.”
This is the kind of fake news garbage the left regularly spews to their audience when, in fact, the exact opposite is true.
The average weight gain of released prisons from 2002-2003 was 13 pounds — They needed new pants!
Between April 2002 and March 2003, the Joint Task Force returned to Afghanistan 19 of the approximately 664 men (from 42 countries) who have been held in the detention camps at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay. Upon leaving, it has been reported, each man received two parting gifts: a brand new copy of the Koran as well as a new pair of jeans. Not the act of generosity that it might first appear, the jeans, at least, turned out to be a necessity. During their stay (14-months on average), the detainees (nearly all of them) had gained an average of 13 pounds.
But the truth means nothing to the MSNBC crowd when they have political points to score.
