I've always been skeptical about accusations of torture done in the War on Terror. But now I'm convinced. Here's a list of the atrocities now being committed by Bush's Gestapo at Guantanamo Bay: Detainees are offered little more than a measly 4,200 calories a day. The average detainee is so starved that he gains 20 pounds. The detainees also suffer religious persecution. Muslims are called to prayer 5 times a day. Arrows on the wall and floor rudely point the praying prisoners towards the city of Mecca. The International Committee of the Red Cross only visits the facility every few months. Less than 20,000 messages have been sent from detainees to their families. Detainees are subjected to brutal isolation and physical agitation, participating in morbid torments including basketball, soccer, ping pong, and board games. Detainees, even after they have left, are subjected to physical poverty. When released, an ex-prisoner is given only a few measly supplies, including a Koran, a jean jacket, a white T-Shirt, a gym bag of toiletries, a pillow, and a blanket for the flight home. Detainees are completely cut off from the world, their sources of entertainment severely limited to tv shows in Arabic, including the World Cup soccer games. The library as a mere 3,500 books. The most commonly checked out one is "Harry Potter". Guantanamo is one of the most secret installations in military history. The facility has hosted only a thousand journalists from a mere 40 countries since the war on terror began. Good God people - such torture has been unheard of in the civilized world since the Gulags! To arms! We have to stop this outrage!

I propose we hand over control of the prison to their bethren - just like we did with Abu Ghraib.

That info is from the Defense Dept's public affairs website.;)

when did they change their policys?

As far as I'm aware of - never. This is the way they've been treating the detainees, even before the media hype.

BTW: nice name, kummer.:)

Someone's been reading my posts in the History subforum, aye?

I guess they commit suicide because it's just too nice over there.

They could be killing themselves because of torture but equally they could be doing it because they've lost and all they have to look forwards to is a life-time of imprisonment. There's not a lot of reliable data coming out of there. It swings around the problem that if the government was really doing this would they allow news of these suicides and the like out of the place? This is a government, well a country anyway, that managed to run Alcatraz for years without anyone throwing too big a barney and it would be all too easy to set up on some god-forsaken island somewhere and never really tell anyone apart from a few guards.

Nono, if they commit suicide, it must be because they're guilty!! No innocent person would kill himself if being held in such a wonderful facility.

Many people all across the globe commit suicide when imprisoned, sometimes for the smallest things, including misdemeanors. A kid in New York jumped out of a high-rise after being convicted of statutory rape. A similar case happened with the same circumstance but he was convicted of petty drug charges involving marijuana. So they both thought a quick flight out a window would solve their problems, well it did. They solved their problems, and every other problem they would ever face.

Another example is where a 24 year old woman in North Dakota committed suicide in county jail for her 2nd dui. That’s a pretty minor thing for most people, but apparently not too her. Suicide while imprisoned is a common occurrence, a desperate measure in a desperate situation. Gitmo doesn’t bother me, neither do the suicides.

People commit suicide all the time - the California Bay bridge is going to be given a higher railing because people keep jumping off. Nothing to do with their "treatment".

I find it hard to believe that there is no connection between those suicides and the treatment of the prisoners. Actually, if I tortured a prisoner a bit too much and accidently killed him, I'd make sure to let it look like a suicide.

But I guess the US government, proud defender of western values* surely wouldn't be able to do someting like this.
