Pinter, Again

Harold Pinter is at it again – this time comparing the US with (of course!) Nazi Germany. Guantanamo Bay is, he says, a “concentration camp”.

Elsewhere on Cuba, of course, there’s a regime that knows a thing or two about concentration camps, political prisoners, mass murder and torture. And what does Pinter have to say about this? Well, not a lot. He is, however, an “active delegate” of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign, a British support group for Cuba’s dictatorship.

Harold Pinter: ‘Active Delegate’, active hypocrite and, as we are reminded yet again, vicious bastard.
