Guantanamo Bay detainees don’t know how good they have it. At least, that’s the view of the perpetual outrage machine over at Fox news.

The notorious detention zone now includes a facility for inmates to get exercise, which is a bridge too far for the Foxers.

A “soccer field” has been installed outside Gitmo’s Camp 6, with connecting cage tunnels so that detainees do not need to be escorted to the field by guards.

Co-operative detainees have access to the field, which at present is a patch of dirt surrounded by barbed-wire fences, for up to 20 hours a day. There are no goals on the field and no reports indicate the availability of a ball.

For the Foxers, though, this all sounds pretty cushy. Take a listen below.
