#1 The suicide 32 attempts intrigue me, if they wanted to kill themselves they could do it. Maybe the Red Cross is mad because we don't allow them to kill themselves in say a crowded market?

#2 I'd care if these guys were POWs. They're not, so I don't.

Hell, I'm all for barring the Red Cross from getting near them, given the ICRC's anti-Israeli antics.

#3 "he said that it was intolerable that the complex was used as "an investigation center, not a detention center."

-Quit yer bitchin' - these jackholes get 5 times a day to pray plus the special Islamic diet tray; 3,000 Americans murdered on 9/11 - the thumb screws are going to be turning in Gitmo for a while yet. What's the old Arab saying - "Revenge takes 40 years" - see you in 2041.

"In 18 months, 21 detainees have made 32 suicide attempts"

-They're just not trying hard enough. On a serious note, he fails to mention the great job our folks are doing down there preventing these morons from completing the deed. Although I'd be tempted to turn a blind eye if Mustafa & Mohammad wanted to hang themselves with their own beard, or beat themselves silly w/their U.S. issued Qu'ran.

"It’s always the No. 1 question," he said. "They don’t know about the future."

-That's an easy one. You're staying guests of the U.S. Military until we say otherwise because you're a bunch of brainwashed loonies & a danger to innocent people everywhere. Plus, we're still pissed about that little thing you pulled called 9/11, so know your role & shut your mouth or we're gonna start using hog fat to cook your rice in. See, uncertainty solved.

#5 OK, Mr. Girod, we've seen the light! We'll turn over, say, 5 of the detainees to you personally. You can house/feed/etc. them any way you want. You, personally, will be responsible for their behavior, including all the people they kill. Maybe they'll start with your family.

Or we can just keep them in Gitmo and save your sorry ass.

As for "they don't know the future" - how about kill them (or allow them to commit suicide), wrap them in pigskins, and bury them with a Star of David on their headstones? Does their present "future" look better now?

It's too bad we're such nice people.

#6 Cheney said they'd be released when the War on Terror is over. That's about as good as any prisoners got during World War 2 so what's the beaf?

#7 "It’s always the No. 1 question," he said. "They don’t know about the future."

If you turn out to be a terrorist, then you don't have a future.
