Western Florida (Central time),

Human rights groups around the world cried foul today
amid reports that the movie version of "The Dukes of
Hazzard" is being used by interrogators at the U.S.
detention center in Guantanamo, Cuba.

According to reports, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
arranged for a private screening of the film at the Pentagon
in mid-July and determined that it could be a powerful tool
for extracting information from enemy combatants.

Over the weekend, when "Dukes" appeared on over three
thousand screens nationwide, it also appeared in at least
twelve interrogation rooms at Guantanamo, playing on a
nonstop loop.

"We have never seen anything like it," said one Guantanamo
interrogator, speaking on condition of anonymity. "About ten
minutes into the film, the prisoners are already willing to talk."

But even as interrogators praised "Dukes" as a welcome addition
to their tactical arsenal, human rights groups such as Amnesty
International blasted the U.S. for using the film, arguing that the
practice could be in violation of the Geneva Conventions against

"We see the use of 'The Dukes of Hazzard' as part of a larger
pattern of abuse," said Amnesty International spokesperson
Jean-Claude Guinod, noting that the U.S. had used the film
"Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" at Gunatanamo in 2004.

At the Pentagon, Secretary Rumsfeld categorically defended
the use of the "Dukes" film, telling reporters, "Don't think for
a moment that if the enemy had 'The Dukes of Hazzard' they
wouldn't use it on us."

A Riddle


In the land of Liars and Truthtellers there were two
families a little different from the general population.
The Smith's, who told the truth only in the morning
lie in the afternoon, and the Jones' who speak
the truth
only in the afternoon and lie in the morning.

You meet one person from each of these families on
street but you are not sure which is which. They
the following statements:

A: It is afternoon
B: My last name is Jones.

Who is who, and is it morning or afternoon?

(Answer below)


A is a Jones, B is a Smith and it is afternoon.
If statement
A were false, it would be morning
and it would have to be a
Jones speaking but
that would also make statement B false
both statements could not be false because
one lies in
the afternoon and one tells the truth.

No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
