Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza of Venezuela visited Guantanamo Bay earlier this month on a trip organized by the USO, which supports U.S. troops.
From the sound of it, she really enjoyed the experience:
“It was a loooot of fun!,” Mendoza wrote, describing how she and Stewart met U.S. military personnel and took rides around the camp, which is encircled by a barbed-wire fenced, minefields and watchtowers. She said they also visited a bar on the base and the “unbelievable” beach there.
“We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the(y) recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting,” she wrote.
“I didn’t want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful,” she added.
I visited the Miss Universe Website, linked to in the Reuters article, and her post seems to have been scrubbed. The latest entry says:
On Friday, we left for Jacksonville for one night because the next day we were going to Guantanamo, Cuba!!!! Wow, my job is amazing!!!! I love it, I let you guys know next week how Guantanamo was …. Muah!
Eh, too bad…someone must have made her take down a post that was too amiable to American interests. Who was it? A Chavez or Obama acolyte?
The NYT’s also covered the story, with a few additional details.
