    Default excessive comfort?

    The report offers excessive comfort to those detained in Camp Delta, while ignoring the difficulties faced by our democracies in dealing with fanatics who are intent on menacing and murdering innocent civilians.

    Can someone explain the expression "excessive comfort" in this sentence?
    Thank you

    It suggests that the report is rather biased and sympathetic towards the detainees and forgets the difficulties faced by the democracies.
