I was just doing a little light reading this morning, on the New York Times website, about Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay when something caught my eye. Right there, atop a photo of Kal Penn and John Cho in orange jumpsuits was this:

A CIA recruitment ad. Odd.

So I did a little more poking and went to the NYT Guantánamo issue page. I clicked through to a few more links and, by golly, it seems that every Guantánamo story brought up a CIA banner ad.

Does the CIA really think that Guantánamo is a good recruiting point or a PR victory? They really are out of touch.
