As usual, this is just my opinion, based on personal research.
Let's start by studying the photo above closely. Could Castro
look more Jewish there? You will say that doesn't mean anything:
maybe he was lit by a Jewish light. So how about the fact Castro
admitted he was Jewish? That's right, he has admitted his
ancestors were Marranos—Spanish Jews who pretended to convert to avoid
He was never an ideological fascist, Cubenas said, and was defnitely
not an anti-Semite. Fidel had explained at the time that he could
not be 'with' the fascists because they were against the Jews, and he
could not be against the Jews for the simple reason that he was
one. He volunteered that he was descended, through his
grandmother, from Jews. Fidel was Catholic, not Jewish, and
Cuban, not European, but he told anyone who would listen that the Jews
were his own people. [Symmes, p. 335]
That is not from Stormfront, that is from a book by respected mainstream journalist and historian Patrick Symmes.
For more evidence, we find these two quotes from Castro at IMDB: I
don't think anyone has been slandered more than the Jews. There is
nothing that compares to the Holocaust. For a Cuban of Spanish descent,
allegedly crushed by US foreign policy from the beginning, he seems
awfully concerned about the Jews. Besides, it is known that Marx
was Jewish and I have shown much evidence Marxism was an early
Intelligence project. So Castro's Marxism is evidence itself that
he was part of this project, as well as Jewish. Marxism has
always been a joint project between prominent Jewish families and
There is also evidence Castro was an actor. For one thing, he has
a page at IMDB. How many other Communist leaders have pages at
the Internet Movie Data Base? He was an extra in several
Hollywood movies, including two in 1946. That year was the year
the CIA was formed.
We are told at IMDB that famous admirers of Castro include Ted Turner,
Jack Nicholson, Danny Glover, Harry Belafonte, Steven Spielberg, Chevy
Chase, Leonardo DiCaprio, Vanessa Redgrave, Robert Redford, Dan Rather,
Peter Jennings and Oliver Stone.
Most of those people are actors. Why would those people admire
Castro? No, really, ask yourself that and demand an answer.
Why would Peter Jennings and Dan Rather admire Castro? Are they
Communists? I suggest to you that these people admire
Castro for his acting skills: his ability to hold a believable pose for
many decades. They may also admire him because he is Jewish and
so are they. A large percentage of Hollywood actors are Jewish, as we
know What about the others on that list? Oliver Stone is Jewish,
the son of stockbroker Louis Silverstein. For all we know
he could be related to Larry Silverstein.
We are told his mother is French Catholic, but have no way to confirm
that. Her mother's maiden name is conspicuously denied us and the
genealogies have been scrubbed. All we know is the name Adele for
Stone's maternal grandmother, with no last name. This is a red
Surprisingly, Harry Belafonte also has Jewish roots. His
grandfather was a Jew from Holland who probably owned land in Jamaica
and probably had relations with one of his workers there. I
assume this means Belafonte's father was also Jewish, unless he was
disowned. We have to assume he wasn't, since Belafonte probably
wouldn't have been born in New York in that case. His father
would have been trapped by poverty in Jamaica. He also wouldn't
have taken the name of his father if he had been disowned and left to
his black mother. We are told the name was originally spelled
Bellanfanti, but that is another dodge. It was probably spelled
Belinfante, the surname of a prominent Jewish line from the Netherlands
that includes the famous cellist Frieda Belinfante, the famous
theologian Moses Belinfante, and the famous journalist Emilie
Belinfante. Harry is probably related to all these people, and
knows it. It was his connections that probably helped him to
become famous. Later, Harry married a Jewish woman, dancer Julie
This is all very strange, and I admit it. I had no idea all this
would come up when I began researching Castro. Is that list at
IMDB a clue? Are all those people on the list Jewish? Even
Ted Turner, Dan Rather, and Danny Glover? We have seen stranger
things. You will say Glover is black and can't be Jewish, but we
just saw that Harry Belafonte, who most people would say is black, is
in fact part Jewish. So who knows? It is something for
someone to research more thoroughly. I made some quick searches
but found no genealogies of those people online.
Which brings us back to my original question. Why would these
people admire Castro? Let's ask why Harry Belafonte would admire
Castro. Belafonte was mentored by Paul Robeson, a Communist, so I
will be told that is the link. But I have shown you all these
prominent people must know that Communism is a project itself. It
was created in around 1848 to draw attention away from the worldwide
Republican revolutions in those years. It has been used since to
undercut unions and real workers' societies, as we saw in my paper on
Eugene Debs. In other words, Communism is gigantic and
longstanding hoax. Nobody is a real Communist, since it was never
a real thing. Is was a manufactured thing from the beginning, and
its leaders have been manufactured as well. Therefore, not only
is Castro not really the revolutionary we have been sold, or the leader
of an independent country, he is not even a Communist. All three
things are acts.
And since that is so, Harry Belafonte can't admire Castro for being a
Communist. He can only admire Castro as a fellow performer.
Curiously, there is another link between Belafonte and Castro.
Remember, Castro is a Marrano, a Spanish Jew. Well, the
Belinfantes are from the Netherlands, but before that they were from
That is Belafonte with Sidney Poitier and Charlton Heston in 1963 at a
Civil Rights march. Notice how they got the Lincoln Memorial in
the background, although it looks faked. The lighting isn't
right. It looks like another paste-up. But anyway, that photo
from Wikipedia is telling, since I outed Heston in my paper on
Marx. It wasn't hard to do since the information is all up on the
web on mainstream sites, most of it at Wikipedia. Heston had top
secret security clearance all the way back to 1947, year one of the
Therefore, seeing him with Poitier and Belafonte here is a huge red
flag, indication that Intelligence was controlling the Civil Rights
movement from the beginning, and that Heston is acting as some sort of
handler here. Heston was never a progressive, so what was he
doing at these Civil Rights marches? Obviously, he was either
controlling them or infiltrating them. You may think Poitier and
Belafonte didn't know that, but my assumption is they did know
it. My assumption is that they were actors or performers playing
a part they were paid to play. The evidence in this paper is only
circumstantial, I admit, and it would take a lot more research to prove
it. But this picture with Heston certainly doesn't whitewash them
at all. Just the reverse. We have seen in my papers that
the left in this country has been manufactured for at least a century,
propped up to make it seem our country is not just a fascist
construct. So it looks to me like all these prominent leftists
are either agents or dupes. You can think they are dupes if it makes
you feel better, but I have shown lots of evidence they aren't. No one
I have previously researched turned out to be a dupe.
But back to Castro. The mainstream sites tell us that his lucky
number is 26. He formed his famous group MR-26-7, on July
26. Curious, since that is also a favorite number of the
CIA—since it adds to 8. Think of all the agents, artists and
musicians who allegedly died at age 26: Sharon Tate, Gram Parsons, Nick
Drake, Otis Redding, Randy Rhoads, Hillel Slovak, Jimmy McCulloch, Paul
Kossoff, Yutuka Ozaki, Jean Harlow, Charles Emmett Mack, John Wilkes
Booth, Aubrey Beardsley, etc. Many of these people are
Jewish. Kossoff, Beardsley and Slovak are admitted to be
Jewish. Mack is probably Jewish. So is Jean Harlow, who was
discovered by her husband Paul Bern, Jewish. Randy Rhoads was
probably Jewish—see Rhoads and the two Jewish kids from KISS.
Rhoads' first band formed at Bingenheimer's Disco. His bandmate
from Quiet Riot Kevin DuBrow is Jewish. Rhoads also probably
faked his death, although I won't have time to unwind that here.
Gram Parsons was probably Jewish. His grandmother was Laura
Irvin. His mother was nee Snively, which was changed from
Schnebele, which is probably Jewish. He went to Harvard, despite
having poor grades. Before that Parsons went to Bolles School in
Florida, founded by Jewish Billionaire Richard Bolles, who had a seat
on the NYSE by the time he was 23. The Schnebeles were closely
related to the famous Hersheys, also Jewish. Gram's father
Cecil Connor was a decorated pilot in the Air Force, reaching the rank
of Major by the 1940s. He was also very wealthy. He is said
to have killed himself in 1958, but that death also looks faked to
me. He was likely a Colonel or Lt. Colonel by that time and went
into Intelligence. His wife didn't grieve for his death at
all, which some have taken as a lack of remorse, but which I take as a
clue to a faked death. We will see other clues below.
Gram's mother then married Robert Parsons, and—amazingly—he is tied to
Cuba. We are told that not only did he own nightclubs in Florida
where Gram played, he also leased heavy construction
equipment. Curiously, his construction clients were mostly
in Cuba. Dave McGowan tells us this was under the government of
Batista, but he seems to be misdirecting you a bit. We have
reached 1959 by that point in the narrative, and by then Castro had
taken over Havana. So you see that just by Googling on the “died
at 26” search, we have found more strange connections.
Being involved in nightclubs and construction equipment, Robert Parsons
sounds like a mobster, right? I mean, this was Florida. But
remember what I have shown you about that. By that time, the mob
had been taken over by Intelligence, so Robert Parsons was more likely
to be one of them or under their thumb. In support of that, we
find Robert Parsons not only adopting Gram, but drawing up a new birth
certificate indicating Gram was his biological son. No one has
that power but the CIA. Go try to rewrite your own birth certificate
and see how far you get. Another indication is Robert “marrying”
Gram's mother Avis, but immediately taking a mistress. I suggest
the marriage was a fake, since Cecil Connor was still alive and Avis
was still married to him.
We have still more indication of Gram being Jewish when he named his
first band the Shilos. Shilo is a Jewish name. Soon after
that, Gram met John Phillips [Mamas and Papas], who has red flags all
over him. See my paper on Sharon Tate for just a few of
them. See Dave McGowan for many others. In 1965, Gram's
mother allegedly died, although, again, it looks to me like she just
retired from the project and went to live with Cecil Connor
“underground”. We have indication of that in the fact that Gram
showed no emotion at her reported death. He continued on as if
she were still alive.
At Harvard, Gram got involved with the famous Club 47, founded in 1958. Curious, since Gram's dad
Cecil Connor allegedly died in 1958. Maybe he went to Cambridge
and founded the club. The name is also curious. Why the
number 47? That was year one of the CIA, remember? They
insert that number all over the place as a marker, sort of like the
number 33. Dylan and Baez were already there by 1961. Both were
spook babies like Parsons. So was the fake Boston Strangler, who
worked his magic at that time on the street on which Club 47 sat.
As usual, Dave McGowan tells you there was misdirection with the
Strangler, but leads you away from the right answer. The right
answer is not that there were multiple killers, but that there was NO
killer. It was yet another Intel project to create fear, although
I will have to unwind that fully elsewhere.
But enough of Parsons. He is relatively small fish. Do you
know who else on that list above might be Jewish? John Wilkes
Booth. It is not my research that discovered that, it is in the
new book on Lincoln by Sarna and Shapell—who are Jewish themselves—and
in the testimony of Booth's sister Asia and brother Edwin. Both
stated that their father was Jewish, attending synagogue and speaking
Hebrew. You may wish to take that back to my paper on Lincoln, since it
gives it another turn of the screw. The authors also admit that
the Lincolns attended a performance of the Merchant of Venice, in which
John Wilkes Booth played Shylock. Why is that worth
mentioning? Because Shylock was a Jewish banker.
My readers will be saying,
“Oh, God, not the Jewish thing again! Are you obsessed with Jews
or something?” No, I'm not. I'm as surprised by all
this as much as you are. I am not choosing these subjects based
on their Jewish content, it just keeps coming up. I had no idea
Castro (or Parsons, or any of the rest) might be Jewish when I started
writing this. I had mentioned in several previous papers that the
Bay of Pigs event looked like an obvious fake to me, so I thought I
should research it more fully. This naturally took me to
Castro. But once I got into it, the Jewish question hit me in the
face once again. It is there, so I can't help but find it.
In almost every event I research, it is very poorly buried, and it is
one of the first things that surfaces. So don't blame me for
it. I am not the one who made all these people Jewish. I
didn't create these projects just so I could have the privilege of
discovering them. I don't like discovering this anymore
than you do.
Anyway, back to Castro. He was a good friend of Ernest Hemingway, who CIA.gov now admits was an agent.
Castro was also friends
with Pierre Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada 1968-1984. We are
told in the mainstream histories that Trudeau was a minor
anti-Semite—basically because he had some soft feelings for Palestine
early on. Then why was he a friend of Castro, at a time Castro
was admitting to his friends he was Jewish? Makes no sense.
Trudeau was schooled as a Jesuit, and he later appointed many Jews to
high posts. He appointed Jack Austin as the first Jewish
Secretary to the PM. He appointed Bora Laskin as the first Jewish
Supreme Court Judge. He appointed Herbert Gray as the first
Jewish Cabinet minister. He appointed Maxwell Cohen as the first
Jewish Envoy to the Court of Justice at the Hague. And he
appointed Alan Gottlieb as the first Jewish Under-Secretary of External
Affairs. The Jewish websites now admit this, eulogizing Trudeau
as the best friend Judaism ever had in Canada. He was the
parliamentary representative of the largely Jewish area of Mount Royal
in central Montreal. He kept a number of Jewish advisers around him and
“always made himself accessible to the Jewish community,” said Moshe
Ronen, national president of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
In 1951, Castro tried out
for the Washington Senators baseball team. This is curious, since
we find with some digging that their long-time chief executive Clark
Griffith has many Jewish names on his mother's side, including the
surnames Starbuck, Dillon, and Ruckman. His father's side is
scrubbed, which is also a red flag. The Jewish names may have
been even more obvious on that side.
More indication in this line is Griffith's well-known propensity for
hiring Jewish ballplayers, including Al Schacht and Charles “Buddy”
Myer. But regardless of that, it is curious to find
Castro trying out for a major-league team in the US. Again, not
the expected arc of the ruler of a Communist country. It would be
like discovering Joseph Stalin had appeared in The Wizard of OZ and had
tried out for the Los Angeles Rams.
Both Snopes and the Washington Post have tried to debunk this baseball
story, but both places are also umlimited hangouts for the CIA, and
they have debunked a lot of other things that are true. The Post
has long been known as the CIA's own newspaper, and they have owned
many of its editors over the years. As for Snopes, it was bought
out early on and has been a front for Intelligence for years, running
disinfo on thousands of topics. Neither outlet is
trustworthy. Seeing Snopes leading the debunking on any
topic is just indication it is true, in my opinion. According to
my research, the main project of Snopes is debunking the truth.
Castro was born to great wealth (sugar plantations) and later became a
billionaire. He is also a lawyer. His first wife Mirta
Diaz-Balart was also from great wealth, being a relative of
Batista. Although Batista and Castro are sold to you as enemies,
they are actually relatives and fellow US agents. Castro lived in
New York City on many occasions, and he spent his honeymoon
there. He and Mirta were married in 1948, and although we are
told her father disapproved of the marriage, he nonetheless gave them
“tens of thousands of dollars to spend on a three-month New York
honeymoon”. Yes, I am sure a lot of revolutionaries of the time
could say the same thing.
Castro joined or co-founded the Party of the Cuban people in 1947, year
one of the CIA. This party was also founded by Eduardo Chibas,
who allegedly killed himself on air in 1951 during a radio
broadcast. He was a senator at the time, and was only 44.
His death appears to have been another fake.
Also in 1947, Castro was part of a planned invasion of the Dominican
Republic, which was stopped by Grau. Somehow Castro and his
compatriots avoided detention and even arrest for this major uprising,
which is not really believable. However, we do know that Grau
stopped the invasion from Cuba at the request of the US, indicating the
US was controlling Cuba all along.
The next year Castro went
to Bogota, Colombia, where he was allegedly involved in more uprisings.
Although he stole guns from a police station, we are told that since
they couldn't tie him to any of the killings with those guns, they let
him go. Right. Go steal guns from your local police station
and see if they let you go with no prosecution. Even worse, go to
a foreign country and steal guns from a police station. Go to
Colombia, steal guns from a police station, and see if they let you off
like they did Castro.
We are told Castro volunteered to deliver a speech for the 30-9
Movement on November 13 , exposing the government’s secret deals
with the gangs and identifying key members. “Attracting the
attention of the national press, the speech angered the gangs, and
Castro fled into hiding”, first in the countryside and then in the
U.S. Returning to Havana several weeks later, Castro laid low and
focused on his university studies, graduating as a Doctor of Law in
Yes, hiding from prominent gangs only requires you hide out for a few
weeks. We all know that. Gangs have a very short memory,
especially when famous rich guys out them on the national news.
Castro again skated charges in 1950, when he was arrested for fighting
with police. Charges were mysteriously dropped. We are told
he had money problems in that year, with his furniture being
repossessed and his electricity cut off. Curious, since he
was still married to the rich girl. Not only that, but his own
family was still wealthy, too. So this story makes no sense.
In early 1952, Castro first ran for Congress, although it is unclear
why anyone thought he was qualified to do so. Nonetheless, he met
with General Batista only months before Batista took over the country.
That's curious, seeing that Castro was only 25 and had done absolutely
nothing important. His law practice was a failure and he had held
no offices. So why was he meeting with Batista? Well,
remember that his rich wife was related to Batista.
We are told Castro brought several legal cases against the new
government of Batista, but you don't sue a dictator, do you? So
once again, this makes no sense. If you sue a real dictator, you
get thrown in a Gulag.
In 1953, Castro began his “serious” revolt against Batista. He
was arrested and sentenced to 15 years, but was pardoned only a year
later by the same people that prosecuted him. Not
believable. It is not even consistent with other parts of the
same story, where we are told other captured rebels were tortured and
executed without trial. So why was Castro given a prominent trial
where he could make famous speeches? Not only was he not
executed, he was somehow pardoned a year later. My guess is he
didn't spend a single day in jail.
Although we are told Batista no longer considered him a threat (hence
the pardon), in 1956 Castro tried again, attacking Cuba from Mexico
with Che Guevara. Upon landing, Batista's forces supposedly
attacked them, killing most of them. The remaining 19 went into
the mountains and waged guerrilla warfare from there.
Right. Kind of like the 19 hijackers, I guess? Somehow,
during this time, Castro was interviewed by the New York Times and
became a celebrity. Amazing, isn't it, that Batista's forces
couldn't find Castro in the mountains, but a NYT reporter could?
CBS and Paris Match also found him.
We are told Castro's men
overran a military outpost in La Plata in 1957. Right.
Nineteen poorly armed men overran a military outpost?
C'mon. Only three months after being wiped down to 19, this group
attacked the Presidential Palace in Havana. Right.
In 1958, Batista is said
to have led a major offensive against the rebels, but failed “because
he knew nothing about guerrilla warfare”. Yes, and what did
Castro know about it? He was a rich boy, lawyer, actor, and
baseball player, not a guerrilla warrior. He was only 31 then, and
before landing from Mexico had never been in a battle.
In short, large parts of the Civil War in Cuba were faked. They
never happened, except in the history books—which were written from
Langley. Castro rose to power in 1959 not because he won any
battles but because he was picked by the US to head the
puppet-government in Cuba.
To understand this, it helps to jump from the Castro history page to
the Cuba history page. Cuba was taken from Spain by the US in
1898, after the Spanish-American War. The fakery in Cuba
goes way back, since that war was entered under false pretexts.
The US battleship Maine was sunk in Havana Harbor, and the sinking was
blamed on Spain. However, it was a false flag, used by the US to
get into a war they wanted to get into. The Hearst newspapers led
the disinformation campaign, inventing the war cry “Remember the
Maine!” Many mainstream sources now admit the sinking of the
Maine was done by US agents. Like the Gulf of Tonkin event, it is
a declassified false flag. They don't care if you know it.
Notice how the Wikipedia page on Cuba misdirects on this, burying the
entire Spanish-American War under the heading of “Independence
Movements”. As if the US entered that war to fight for Cuban
independence. You have to laugh. Although it is
admitted that Spain ceded Cuba to the US, not to Cuba, we are told Cuba
was given independence by the US in 1902. So we are
supposed to believe the US spent all that money fighting a war, and
then just gave away what they had been fighting for. They admit that
the US maintained the large Guantanamo Bay Naval Base on the island,
but we are told that the US was just leasing it from Cuba—for their own
protection, I suppose. But remember that the US maintained that
base throughout the 20th century, up to the present moment.
Guantanamo Bay Naval Station is 45 square miles, and contains two
separate air fields. That's huge. Do you know how much we paid to
lease it? We leased it for a period of 113 years for a total of
$6,000. That's right, you read that right. Six thousand
dollars, total. You can't buy a Vespa for that now. Gitmo
costs about half a billion dollars to run every year and houses about
10,000 soldiers and contractors. But it is large enough to hold
many more, and in the 1960s it swelled to more than twice that number.
Each year Cuba spends on
total military about 1/10th what we spend on Guantanamo Bay
alone. The total military budget of the US is about 10,000 times
that of Cuba—and that doesn't even include Intelligence and black ops,
which may double that number.
You may wish to re-think
the Bay of Pigs story with that in mind. If Cuba was able to
repel an invading force in 1961, why isn't it able to drive this US
base off the island?
We are told Cuba has
wanted the base to close since 1959, but we just ignore them. You
may also want to ask yourself what all these soldiers at Guantanamo
were doing while the invading force was allegedly being repelled in
1961. We are told the US invaders included only 1,400
paramilitaries. We are told that training of these troops was in
Florida, Alabama and Puerto Rico. Really? Why not train
them at the US base on the island of Cuba? Why not use the
thousands of US soldiers already camped on the island?
It is beyond belief,
really. Go read the Bay of Pigs Invasion page at Wikipedia.
The US Naval Base on the island is not mentioned once. This
is all you need to understand that the entire event was a hoax.
Here is rough map of the
island. Now, say you are the head of the US military and you want
to invade Cuba. You have a huge base on the island. Are you
going to choose the Bay of Pigs as the location of your invasion,
flying in paramilitary from Florida?
Not a chance. You are going to attack from the base you already
have on the island, and you are going to attack Havana directly.
Havana is right on the
coast and your base is a naval and air force base. So you come in
from the north and land right at Havana, overwhelming it
immediately. Why in the world would anyone attack Cuba from the
south, having to trek all the way across the island to reach
But we didn't have to invade Cuba, because it was already ours.
You don't need to invade an island where you already have a large
military base. The story couldn't be any stupider if it
We find the same misdirection on the page for the Cuban Missile Crisis,
where Guantanamo Naval Base gets three mentions, but none of them tie
the base to the Crisis in a sensible way. Since we already had a
huge military base on the island, there is no way the Soviet Union
would think of putting one there also. The whole story is absurd
from the first word. For example, we have large bases in
Germany. Do you think Russia is going to start construction on
their own military bases just up the road from those? No,
it doesn't happen that way, for obvious reasons.
For instance, if Cuba had really been independent and Castro had really
gone into negotiations with Khrushchev, the US would have immediately
nullified that independence and taken over the island from
Guantanamo. It would have taken a matter of hours.
Therefore, we know that the long and illogical story we are told is
just more yarn spinning, told to create fear and keep military budgets
In conclusion, we have found another ludicrous story passed off as
history. Castro's bio is another patchwork of inconsistencies and
impossibilities, one that is almost as risible as the bio of Jack
It is just more indication
they think we are all idiots. We don't even merit a well crafted
tale, one where the plot holds together.
Do you think “real”
historians can't see what I see? Do you think thousands of
college-educated wonks, as detail-oriented as any scholars, don't know
what I have just told you?
Of course they know.
Anyone who has bothered to read these bios and histories closely must
know they are total disinfo.
I put it that way because it means that all the historians are in on the con.
They aren't dupes,
either. They are all hired to shovel this gruel down your throat,
to the last man and woman. Why else would you have to hear it from
No historians ever tell
you these stories are faked. No lawyers ever tell you the court
cases are faked. No artists ever tell you the art market is a big
con. No scientists ever tell you science is a hoax. So what
does that tell you about the world? It tells me current “culture”
is a total fucking write-off. Modern society is little more than a
longrunning conjob, a smokescreen, a fairy tale written by twisted
It is time to hand it back to the creators with a big NO THANKS!
Tell them you have no use for their fake world, and then start making
your own real one. It can be done. I am doing it. Why
don't you join me? It is a far better place.
Addendum February 16, 2018:
A reader just sent me this:
If the 9/11 story is manufactured and the terrorists are fake, it means
Gitmo prison is also a fake. Here are some of the alleged
See any problems?
Long beard and palm-tree like hair are not allowed in prisons.
This type of hair reminds me of Sideshow Bob, a character from the
Simpsons, who, incidentally, is a criminal mastermind and an actor
. Also, study many of these photos and you will see that they are
computer generated, with several of them based on the same face.
Miles showed this with the Aryan brotherhood fakes in his Manson paper,
and we see a similar thing here. The same actor may be playing
several prisoners. If you watch YouTube videos about
Guantanamo, you can fnd a gazillion inconsistencies, so it's useless to
list them all here. But one example is that Men's Health magazine
(placed on a book shelf labeled as Women's Fitness) shows up
prominently. They also like to read Harry Potter (nice plug
of this other Intel project) and watch The Desperate Housewives .
Sure they do. I guess they took lessons and are now advanced
students of English language. And what about those pictures with
prisoners lying on stretchers, wearing handcuffs and flipflops ?
In the frst few years after the war, these were some of the few
pictures of the prisoners published in the media. Are the guys on
stretchers injured and need to be carried to the doctor? Or do
they expect us to believe they carry them around the prison like that
all the time? Why would they need to do that in such a secured
prison? It makes no sense, except as more nonsensical drama.
According to Human Rights First organisation, the cost for running
Guantanamo Bay prison facility (not the whole base) in 2015 was $445
million ($5,6 billion in total up to 2015!). The annual cost per
prisoner at Guantanamo is a whooping $10 million, while the annual cost
per prisoner at the federal maximum security prison is only
$34,000. It seems this old dumpyard prison is another obvious
