Keith Ellison goes to Gitmo...

and all he got was this lousy t-shirt. I wish. Instead he will get the perfect pr opportunity that he will no doubt work to his advantage at the University of Moonbat Law School on Friday. More to follow.

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison is visiting the Guantánamo Bay military prison in Cuba, where the U.S. holds 277 foreign terrorism suspects.

Ellison, a Democrat and the only Muslim member of the U.S. Congress, is making the trip with the U.S. Army. He plans to talk about his impressions during a speech at the University of Minnesota Law School on Friday.

In a statement from his office, Ellison said he was concerned that the U.S. was holding detainees without charging them with crimes. He also said he was concerned about the living conditions at the detention center, and hopes to meet with some of the detainees.

Ellison says he believed that some of the detainees are hardened terrorists. But he said he was also convinced that some were swept up in what he called the ''hysteria'' following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Forget the hysteria that followed 9/11 right, Keith?
