As was reported earlier, inmates at Guantanamo Bay have been blessed with the construction of a brand new, nearly $1 million soccer field.  A communications director for Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) has posted a video of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta being questioned about the expenditure.  Panetta apparently had no idea about the soccer field.

Huelskamp – I had a constituent contact me today about a news item.  Did you know that apparently federal taxpayers are paying for a $750,000 soccer field at Gitmo.  Is that something that the Department of Defense knew about?  Or is that…

Panetta – I’m sorry what was that?

Huelskamp – A $750,000 soccer field at Gitmo that was just announced by the Department of Defense.  Is that something you were aware of?

Panetta – No I wasn’t.
