Guantanamo worse than Auschwitz

House Foreign Affairs Chairman Tom Lantos (D-Calif.) recently reportedly said to a visiting Dutch delegation that:

"Europe is not as outraged by Auschwitz as by Guantanamo Bay."

The prison at Guantanamo isn't even remotely comparable to Auschwitz, the most infamous of the Nazi death camps. But Lantos, known for his pungent comments, has a point. Would it surprise if there were not inconsiderable swaths of Europe that are more outraged about Gitmo than they are or would have been about Auschwitz.
