The Gitmo Story

This  is one of those oddball stories that you simply have to ponder.

The Al-Qaida guys have been watching for a while over the Gitmo business and this recent prison hunger strike episode.

This week, Al-Qaida has finally said that they just might take actions to free their buddies.

The odds?  Well....Cuba is a bit difficult to imagine a number of jihad guys arriving and carrying out some mission.

You'd have to land on the American installation with adequate forces.....probably at least a hundred....run through base, and somehow get to the prison complex.  All the while.....facing US Marines....armed Marines.

One could imagine a movie script to cover this, but an actual operation?  I'm guessing it'd be mostly unsuccessful, with no prisoner making it to freedom, and a fair number of the Al-Qaida guys dying in the process.  Course, this would scare the administration greatly, and Congress would call for meetings to discuss if it's safe to maintain the current complex.

One can only hope it's all talk, and no real substance.
