Normal Prison Fare

Once again, in the article Records Detail Inmate Fights at Guantanamo, Ben Fox over at AP has made it a point to state the obvious, then try to make an issue out of it.
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Detainees at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have clashed at least 16 times, including one man who claims he has been beaten by fellow prisoners because he practices a different form of Islam than the majority at the camp.
Just more of that wonderful religious tolerance CAIR is always touting. If this is true, how can the Guardian and AP claim this was religious violence, inspired by Bush and Blair, because of the political situation between Islam and the West?
None of the incidents resulted in life-threatening injuries to the detainees at the center for U.S. terror suspects, according to the documents, which were obtained by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.
I'm so glad the AP is spending all that lawsuit money in the interest of international subhuman rights.
In one incident, two detainees fought after one accused the other of lying to military interrogators about him. In another, detainees threw water and feces at each other repeatedly in a dispute after one sang during the evening Muslim prayer call.
If any openings occur in the Oregon primate exhibit, these guys should consider submitting a resume. I am positive they would draw a crowd.
In a third, a fight broke out between two men after one accused the other of insulting his family.
What did he say? Yo mama takes off her burqa?
Military censors have blacked out names and other identifying details of detainees, U.S. troops or other witnesses...
You don't Say! With people like Reuters, AP, BBC, and the NYT out there, what do these troops and witnesses have to fear?
It is not clear from the documents whether the detainees were disciplined, but officials at the Navy base have said that inmates who break rules can be segregated, placed in more restrictive settings or lose access to such comforts as chess boards provided by the military.
No problem. They can fashion new chess pieces out of their ample supply of feces.
In a case that prompted an investigation, one detainee told military authorities that he was beaten by inmates and had urine thrown at him because he is a Shiite Muslim and most of the approximately 500 other prisoners are Sunni.
Of course they used urine. Throwing Shiite at him would be like pooping on poop.
Hat tip to Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Another inmate claimed that he was beaten and threatened by other inmates because "high-ranking" detainees believed he was a spy. Military authorities found no evidence of any assaults involving the detainee and concluded there was no evidence to back his claims, the documents show.
The 'high-ranking' detainees must be the scum behind the scum; Those who have the most egregious social orientation (and feces).
The U.S. government began shipping suspected terrorists to Guantanamo in early 2002 and the camp has held some 700 prisoners from 45 countries since it opened. The government announced this week that it planned to transfer some 110 Afghans at the prison back to their home country.
It's a prison folks! We have evil, incarcerated barbarians, working out a pecking order. Where is the story here? The only reason I can figure, for the mere existence of this article, is to garner anti-US sentiment. period.

I know. The moral relativism and skewed perception, vectors into the realm of perversion.

We always used to keep 7-8 chickens when I was growing up. Stupid things stank bad enough to make your eyes water, would peck each other bloody to establish dominance, and walk around happily in their own crap. When they stopped laying, my dad would lop off their head with a cleaver.

I'm just sayin'... I don't see these terrorists giving us any eggs.

Insolublog said...

Not that I'm pleased to credit the French with anything, but they used to equip their prisons with just such a mechanism. So cough up those intelligence eggs mr. terrorist!

Not that this is a democracy, but I vote for the lopping off of heads, since I can't garner any support for my impaling idea.

I think the key phrase in the article is "high-ranking". That's always a code word for "Karl Rove".

As for lopping off heads, that's cruel, barbaric, insensitive...and I like it!

Pebble said...

Thank you... Link fixed.

Ya know most of the prisoners that have been released from GITMO, have been found killing again! And in the training camps... go fgure.

Hmm... Lopping off heads. Indeed.
