Lawmakers tour Gitmo, say most requested book ’50 Shades of Grey’



If it’s true that you can tell a lot about a person by the books in his library, the detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba are speaking volumes about themselves. Their most requested book isn’t the Quran, as one would expect, but the super-steamy novel, “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., was part of a Congressional delegation that got the chance to tour Gitmo’s secretive Camp Seven last week. That’s when their military tour guide let them in on the detainees’ favorite readinf matter, according to the Huffington Post.

“Rather than the Quran, the book that is requested most by the [high-value detainees] is Fifty Shades of Grey. They’ve read the entire series in English, but we were willing to translate it,” Moran, who advocates for closing the facility, told HuffPost. “I guess there’s not much going on, these guys are going nowhere, so what the hell.”

Guantanamo’s Camp Seven houses the most valued and notorious of the facility’s inmates and probably for that reason, the military refuses to acknowledge even its existence to the press.

Upon learning of the detainees’ favorite tome, FrontPage Mag quipped, “To be fair, there’s probably not that much of a difference between the two books. Both place a high value on abusing women.” I’ll reserve my opinion.
