Thanks to a multimillion-dollar federal contract, Guantanamo Bay prisoners can enroll in seminars to learn all about basic landscaping and pruning, calligraphy and Microsoft PowerPoint while the U.S. figures out what to do with them.

Prisoners also can get in touch with their artistic sides.

“At a minimum, the art seminar shall include water color painting, charcoal sketching, Arabic calligraphy, acrylic painting and pastel painting,” contract records reviewed by The Washington Times state.

The documents surfaced last week in a U.S. Court of Federal Claims lawsuit stemming from a dispute over a more than $5 million contract to provide library and seminar services to detainees at U.S. Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The papers offer a glimpse at just how military detainees can pass the time while officials decide their fates.

Who holds that contract and what is their relationship to either the Obama administration or some Democrat Congressman?

probably the same relationship all the lawyers have. They are all lawyers from Holders old law firm. Friends of the administration no doubt.

Its better to keep them occupied and keeping these dregs of humanity from thinking about ways of attacking the USA twenty four hours a day. In the Phillipines, they have performance contests in their penal system to keep their prisoners occupied.
