RUSH: I have to tell you about a new video game, an Xbox video game, Xbox 360 is Microsoft as you know, and we have already linked to a trailer for this game. There is a Weekly Standard story by Tom Joscelyn explaining this new video game, we’ve linked to it at RushLimbaugh.com. But apparently a former detainee at Guantanamo, Moazzam Begg, has developed a game for the Xbox 360 in which a Guantanamo detainee will kill American soldiers to break out of Guantanamo. It is disgusting. Now, the manufacturer of the game says, ‘No, no, no, no, nobody gets killed or anything,’ but if you watch the trailer it’s an open question. You can see a trailer at RushLimbaugh.com. This is something that Bill and Melinda Gates — they have their Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and so forth — they should be made aware and held accountable if this is something they allow to go forward. Military families all over the country are just going to be outraged by this. They have risked their lives to capture these terrorists, and the game dishonors the sacrifice that they’ve made for our country.
The game is obviously political. I don’t want to describe the trailer. It takes 60 seconds to watch it, so you can see it at RushLimbaugh.com. We have both the website for the game and the YouTube video. They’re both the same thing. You will see it’s a game played from the standpoint of a detainee and how unfair he’s treated and how hopeless his life is and all is lost unless he can escape. There’s already a firestorm of conversation about this that’s percolating out there now. Also, speaking of Guantanamo Bay, this is a USA Today/Gallup poll: ‘Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to closing the detention center for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and moving some of the detainees to prisons on US soil, a USA Today/Gallup Poll finds. By more than 2-1, those surveyed say Guantanamo shouldn’t be closed. By more than 3-1, they oppose moving some of the accused terrorists housed there to prisons in their own states.’
As USA Today says, this is Susan Page, ‘The findings underscore the difficult task President Obama faces in convincing those at home that he should follow through on his campaign promise to close the prison in Cuba, especially in the absence of a plan of where the prisoners would go. In many parts of the world, however, Gitmo has become a symbol of US arrogance and abuse, and Obama has cited its closure as a way to lay the foundation for better relations,’ and I guarantee you he’s going to be talking about it once he gets over to the Middle East. The next apology tour is underway. He’s also saying, by the way, that, hey, Iran is entitled to nukes. They’re entitled to nuclear power, as long as they promise they won’t weaponize any of it.
