Gitmo Jihadist Detainees Get New $750,000 Soccer Field Courtesy Of The American Taxpayer…

Weasel Zippers

(Fox News) — At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches — at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.

The project was the highlight of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters at the facility covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.

The project began in April 2011 and is due to finish this spring. The detainees will now have three recreation facilities at Camp 6, which is home to “highly compliant” detainees who live in a communal setting.

In addition to an indoor recreation field and the existing outdoor recreation field, the new soccer field — selected because it is such a popular sport with detainees — is half the size of an American football field.

The new field has been specially constructed so that the detainees “have maximum access” — about 20 hours a day. Special passageways allow the detainees to pass into the new recreation yard without being escorted by the military.

  1. A pork fat swimming pool is needed at this point. I’d be happy to pay from my own pocket!

    • How about a hot dog stand on the side line. Nothing like a good ol American hot dog while you’re watching a game.

  2. Unbelievable !!! I can not believe that the current administration has the gall to construct a soccer field on Gitmo. Obama is bringing down our country one trillion dollars at a time. Please give us someone that will be able to defeat him in the November elections. Someone with some common sense must be out there somewhere. Obama needs to go!!!!!

    • This November may be our last chance to take back our Country. Spread the word and make sure people know the truth.

  3. I really don’t think this is even worth going into.

    • It’s not but………..these guys get three meals a day, get tp pray 5 times a day, free housing, clothes, beach front propety and yet that’s not enough.
