#1 A New Zealand expert on physical and mental health..

Sorry, but we're not particularly concerned with the physical or mental health of the purveyors of terrorism. On the other hand, if the Kiwis are, I'm sure they wouldn't mind taking in Gitmo's "residents"....

..and UN inspectors should be allowed in, Prof Hunt said.

I don't see why. After all, Gitmo isn't a UN-sanctioned facility.

#2 They were invited in. They demanded to have no escorts or witnesses, which was refused. So they wrote their report based solely on hearsay.

#3 Like the UN regularly inspects the non-combat prisoners in other confinement facilities in Cuba or N.Korea. Right. By the way, how are the confinement conditions for Specialist Matt Maupin?

#5 So they wrote their report based solely on hearsay.

A clear indication that there was no original intent to perform an objective analysis.

Screw off alot in high school. That's why I'm a nationally reknowned expert on arbitrary detention. I did over 1,000 hours.

#9 I think we should release everyone in Gitmo.

But they have to go to New Zealand. And they get no travel papers, so they can't leave. AND we implant a gps chip (unbeknownst to them) in each one and zap him if he leaves NZ.

But what they do in NZ (as long as it doesn't involve Americans, Brits, or Aussies) is none of our concern.

Their choice.
