Military officials toured members of Congress through Guantanamo Bay's Camp Seven last week, and the representatives managed to come away with some previously unknown info -— the high-value detainees at the camp love the Fifty Shades of Grey series.
Rep. Jim Moran told 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. I guess there's not much going on, these guys are going nowhere, so what the hell.
Moran advocates closing Guantanamo.
Military officials won't comment on the high-value detainees reading habits (they don't admit to the press that Camp Seven even exists). However, this isn't the detainees' first foray into American pop culture. Allegedly, the detainees have a library where they can play FIFA on Playstation 3 and watch Everybody Loves Raymond DVDs.
Christian Grey, it must be said, is decidedly racier than Ray Romano. But not nearly as funny.
