#1 Let the asshats friggin' swim home. Or fly 'em back home and let them jump out over their home countries - "as is".

#2 Amnesty International said that such abuse, if true, would be "totally unacceptable and alarming".

And 6 million dead in the sudan and systematic torture and rape in Tibet, and many etcs are not?

I used to be a member of AI, but now the organization has been hijacked and corrupted and this trading off its honorable past should be rejected.

Long rant on muslims (and AI)lacking a moral compass avoided.

#3 I am disappointed in the lack of professionalism displayed by the GITMO staff. I may be quibbling, but the correct term is "camel jockey" not "camel rider."

#4 Let's not forget that they've all been TOLD to make charges of abuse.

#5 I got an idea. Let me buy some of them lap dances, and then let AI bitch about abuse; and keep a straight face.

#6 Well, "camel head" and "rag rider" are just plain silly.

#10 Ragheads?

No - thats only the dirty ones. Now that we cleaned 'em up and dressed 'em, they are properly titled "towelheads".

Or "Sheet-heads" to be more precise, but you have to watch how you pronounce that.

Thats Gulf War I terminology for some "3rd party types" we dealt with then - we never disrespected their troops, at least they wore a uniform and did try to fight in spots, and fought as well as they could when they did. The 3rd party types though...

#11 For generating ethnic slurs, the Arabs are pretty good themselves. Spend four months bobbing around in the Persian Gulf listening to endless chatter on teh bridge to bridge radio. It was all: "Philipino Monkey," then "Arab Donkey" then back to "Philipino Monkey, banana banana." It got to some of the Philipino officers after a while, but for me it took on a rap like beat that passed the time.

#12 You call that abuse? Jeez, I'd be blaring Metallica's "The God That Failed" 24/7. These guys have a lot to learn about abuse.

#13 Boy, the commutards at amnesty inc. are really grasping at straws if this is the best they can come up with. I guess they were waiting for the detainees to tell wild stories about being put on the rack and thrown in the iron maiden. I guess it's ok to call us infidel pigs and zionist monkeys, but you can't make any comments to the blessed of allah.

WHILE public affairs officers these days are going to great lengths to talk about how docile the prisoners are, detainees have been reported biting a guard, spitting, and threatening to kill Americans. When I skirt away from my minders and visit the Marine snipers' tent, I learn it went well beyond that.

The snipers, of course, are the camp's deadliest sharpshooters, ropy young bucks (21-23 years of age) who seem largely culled from the western or southern United States, where firearms are often regarded as extra appendages. Their tent looks like a Marines-issued college dorm room: Skoal-juice bottles, laundry hanging everywhere, and a spade-like sniper insignia banner tacked to a tent wall. If there is a prison uprising, it is these gentleman who will man the guard towers and introduce the rioters to their 72 black-eyed virgins.

At some point, that might become necessary, they tell me, as plotting is obviously afoot. Sgt. Matt Lampert of Montana says the other day one of the prisoners was caught "with a piece of cloth stuffed with rocks that was tied off at the end." Sgt. Rodney Davis says that during chowtime, he sees them through his scope "making terrain models out of their food." And unlike say, Afghan prisons, where starving detainees are reportedly begging to be sent to Gitmo, there's plenty of food to play with. "They get fed better than us, sir," says Lampert. When I ask the Marines if they've seen anything weird, they laugh sheepishly, looking at each other. Finally, Sgt. Josh Westbrook, who sports a forearm tattoo of flaming baby heads, steps up. "They know they're being watched," he explains, "so they'll stare at you, and while they stare at you, they'll, uh, masturbate."

According to these Marines, they don't just pleasure themselves to freak out the snipers, but also to embarrass the female Army guards in the camp's interior. The weirdness doesn't end there. They've also eaten their toiletries and urinated on equipment. "The other day," says Westbrook, "one of the guys tried to do a naked cartwheel." In the most bizarre twist, Lance Corporal Devin Klebaur says a few have also been known to "put toothpaste in their ass." "What's the purpose?" I ask. "I'm not sure," he says, puzzled.

Read the whole thing.

#16 Embarass the female Army guards? The best reply is for the woman to laugh and make a gesture indicating it is miniscle.

#18 wow this really is funny but at the same time infuriating how people actually care about these tossers.I just hope these so called 'British' citizens arn't allowed back over here to wriggle thier slimy way through are twisted legal system.Hell over here you can almost kill someone and get away with a small fine and probation,trust me i've been there,i bet they wouldn't even be put on trial here due to the way are shit (or not so shit for me lol) system works.I'm hoping that if they do get out into the public again in this country which is almost deffinate if they get let out from guantanamo then a few vigilanti types will get them....

#20 We need to build another couple of hundred cages at Gitmo, and put big banners up on the sides: "Reserved for Amnesty International", "Reserved for the International Red Cross", "Reserved for ACLU Lawyers". Each set of cages gets smaller, with fewer amenities. Put them in nasty spots, like right next to the beach so the sand crabs can get in, or near the jungle, so the spiders, scorpions, centipedes, and other creepy-crawlies can have immediate access.

We are at war with an enemy that not only wants to defeat us, that enemy wishes to TOTALLY destroy our civilization and all it represents. Those aiding and abetting our enemies are our enemies, and we need to begin immediately treating them as such.

If those jihadis attack a guard, I hope the butt end of a rifle promptly finds the sides of their faces.

#25 Those snipers seem bored. I say put them to work. It'd be pretty funny to see one of these dickheads (sorry, Mahmoud) yanking on it when a 30.06 round takes it off. Oh, the look on his face! It was priceless!

#26 As far as I'm concerned, these shitheads lost their British citizenship a long time ago. We should tell them that and watch the reaction.

4thinvet - LOL!!

tu3031 - ouch!
