Reuters has this story about Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza visiting Guantanamo Bay:
Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, 22, of Venezuela, visited the U.S. naval facility in eastern Cuba this month on a trip organized by the United Service Organizations (USO) which supports U.S. troops.
Mendoza was there along with Miss USA Crystle Stewart, 27.
Here’s Miss Universe’ blog entry (since removed):
“It was a loooot of fun!,” Mendoza wrote, describing how she and Stewart met U.S. military personnel and took rides around the camp, which is encircled by a barbed-wire fenced, minefields and watchtowers. She said they also visited a bar on the base and the “unbelievable” beach there. “We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how they recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting,” she wrote. “I didn’t want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful,” she added. “We also met the Military dogs, and they did a very nice demonstration of their skills. All the guys from the Army were amazing with us.”
Before the visit, USO had announced Mendoza and Stewart were being “deployed” to Guantanamo on an entertainment tour to visit U.S. troops abroad to “boost morale.”
We just got weird flashbacks to that scene in Apocalypse Now with the Playboy bunny USO show.
We also are wondering how Mendoza feels about her country’s socialist dictator Hugo Chávez, if she can even be bothered to think about that stuff at all. Anyway, who cares? Check these babes out:
