Potemkin Bay

Miss Universe says had lot of fun in Guantanamo | U.S. | Reuters .

MIAMI (Reuters) – A “relaxing, calm, beautiful place” may not be everyone’s description of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States holds about 240 prisoners in a detention center that has drawn condemnation from around the world.

But this was the opinion of reigning Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela, who visited the U.S. naval facility in eastern Cuba this month on a trip organized by the United Service Organizations (USO) which supports U.S. troops.

Nobody bought this line when the Navy dude tried to give it a few weeks back, but it’s gonna be totally different now that Miss Universe is the one reading the talking points?

Come the fuck on. The place isn’t getting closed for no reason. People’s opinions are pretty well set and having a model get hyperbolic after an arranged tour isn’t going to accomplish much unless the goal is to insult peoples’ intelligence.
