I haven’t posted much about it yet, but Matt is absolutely right in his assessment of this nugget of insanity from the official response to the three suicides at Guantanamo.
Three detainees at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, committed suicide by hanging themselves with clothing and bedsheets, U.S. defense officials said Saturday.
“They are smart. They are creative, they are committed. They have no regard for life, either ours or their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of …warfare waged against us,” Rear Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the Joint Task Force Guantanamo, said in a telephone news conference.
I guess he’s right in a way. After all, it’s an act of aggression for them to deprive us of the opportunity to torture them. I mean, it’s possible to torture dead bodies, but it’s probably not as much fun, so I can understand Harris’ disappointment.
Oh well, maybe they can still kick the corpses around a little.
Our government has gone fucking insane.
