WTF moment of the day

Gitmo Admiral: Detainees pretty much live in a fraternity house

Detainees released from the prison at Guantanamo Bay have complained about inhumane conditions there, but according to the admiral in charge, their living situation is "pretty much" like that in a fraternity house.

Rear Admiral Mark Buzby, who is completing a one-year assignment as the commander of the Joint Task Force Guantanamo recently held a conference call with defense bloggers to discuss the treatment of detainees.
Except that there are no keggers and the hazing violates the Geneva Convention, other than those small differences.... I wasn't in a fraternity, so I might be wrong.
Of course this begs the question: Just what fraternity was Admiral Buzby in?

Well I heard that there is a ritual that occurs on naval ships when they cross the equator that involves, um, activity that sounds awfully homoerotic to me. For the newbies, of course. So maybe he wasn't exaggerating.

At what point did ALL news from Washington DC become like the Daily Show - funny yes, but the kind that makes you laugh to keep from crying.

if it's such a great place to live, why doesn't he check in?
