Abuse at GITMO Finally Proven!

Calling the ACLU, the International Red Cross, the UNHCHR, the IFRC, Amnesty International, the ICHRP, the ICHR, and HURIDOCS...

The American military is being abused, degraded and humiliated! Are any of these organizations going to step up and do something about it?

At Club GITMO the prisoners (who have it way better than anyone in a shelter here) have attacked the guards hundreds of times. (I posted about this a while back, but since it's in the news again -let's review and revel in the hypocrisy)

--Turning broken toilet parts, utensils, radios and even a bloody lizard tail into makeshift weapons

--Guards are routinely head-butted and spat upon

--Doused by "cocktails" of feces, urine, vomit and sperm* collected in meal cups by the prisoners.

--They've been repeatedly grabbed, punched or assaulted by prisoners who reach through the small "bean holes" used to deliver food and blankets through cell doors. (source)

(*Are Muslims allowed to masturbate? Taxpayers are footing the bills for special Muslim diets and Qur'an hammocks and they're not adhering to Islamic law anyway?!)

I don't know what the rest of the world thinks about this, but I'd rather play naked Twister, have dogs bark at me or wear panties on my head than have a DNA cocktail thrown on me any day. Now that’s abuse!
