A post from June 2007:

In Cuba, there are many political prisoners. In fact, most Cubans would love to be transferred to GITMO. At least, the Red Cross and the Western media are allowed to travel to GITMO. Furthermore, someone actually cares about your rights at GITMO.

Check out:
"Families and friends of eight independent Cuban journalists who have been unjustly imprisoned since 2003 say that the health of their loved ones has seriously deteriorated in recent months amid poor prison conditions and insufficient health care.

In a series of interviews with the Committee to Protect Journalists, relatives and friends described health problems ranging from diabetes and a tumor to pneumonia and cataracts. In some cases, they say, the journalists have received little medical attention. They say hot and unsanitary prison conditions have exacerbated the medical problems.
Pre-existing ailments have worsened in prison, the families and friends say, while a host of serious new illnesses have arisen among those jailed.
Twenty-three of the 25 journalists imprisoned today in Cuba were jailed during a massive crackdown on the independent press in March 2003. After perfunctory, closed-door trials, the journalists were handed prison sentences of up to 28 years in prison on antistate charges stemming from their reporting. The journalists had worked for independent news agencies, filing stories by phone and fax to overseas news outlets and Web sites. Cuba is one of the world’s leading jailers of journalists, second only to China". (In Cuba, health of jailed journalists deteriorates)
Where is Michael Moore when we really need him?

P.S. Beyond Cuba, Moore should read this:
"But as P.J. O'Rourke once commented, if Mike thinks health care is expensive now, just wait until it's free." (Michael Moore's Shticko - Michael Moynihan, Reason)
