… It’s no wonder that situation in Iraq is such a cluster-fuck!. Today three prisoners committed suicide at the illegal prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. These guys after being imprisoned and “interrogated” there for almost 4 years with no hope of ever being tried or released, these guys had enough. So the commander of the prison had this to say:
Navy Rear Adm. Harry Harris, commander of Guantanamo, told a news conference the suicides were an act of warfare.
“They are smart. They are creative, they are committed. They have no regard for life, neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of asymmetrical warfare waged against us,” Harris said.
I have a question. How does tying your clothes and bedsheets together and hanging yourself in your cell qualify as an act of warfare against your captors? Maybe officers like Adm. Harris should keep their mouths shut and let the professional idiots like Bush and Rumsfeld do the talking. How can a soldier hear these words from their commander and still have any respect for them and be able to take orders from them?
