Fwd: Fw: The LARK Programme

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Srinivasan Ravi <>

THE LARK PROGRAMA person wrote a letter to the White House
complaining about the
treatment of a captive taken during the Afghanistan war. Attached
is a copy of a letter they received back:

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20016

Dear Concerned Citizen:

Thank you for your recent letter roundly criticizing our treatment

of the Taliban and Al Qaeda detainees currently being held at

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

Our administration takes these matters seriously, and your opinion
was heard loud and clear here in Washington. You'll be pleased to

learn that, thanks to the concerns of citizens like you, we are
creating a new division of the Terrorist Retraining Program, to be called the "Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers" program, or LARK for short. In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided to place one terrorist under your personal care.

Your personal detainee has been selected and scheduled for
transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence next
Monday. Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mohamed (you can just call him Ahmed) is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of admonishment.

It will likely be necessary for you to hire some assistant caretakers.
We will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards
of care for Ahmed are commensurate with those you so strongly
recommended in your letter.

Although Ahmed is sociopathic and extremely violent, we hope that
your sensitivity to what you described as his "attitudinal problem"
will help him overcome these character flaws.  Perhaps you are

correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences.
He will bite you, given the chance.

We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or
nail clippers.

We do not suggest that  you ask him to demonstrate these skills at
your next yoga group. He is also expert at making a wide variety of
explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless (in your opinion) this might offend him.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with your wife or daughters (except
sexually) since he views females as a subhuman form of property. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him, and he has been known to show violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the new dress code that Ahmed will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure they will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the bhurka - over time.

Just remind them that it is all part of "respecting his culture and his religious beliefs" - wasn't that how you put it?

Thanks again for your letter. We truly appreciate it when folks like

you, who know so much, keep us informed of the proper way to do our job. You take good care of Ahmed - and remember...we'll be watching.

Good luck!

Cordially...Your Buddy,

Don Rumsfeld
