The great suicide conspiracy of 2006

Crazed Muslim fanatics with absolutely no respect for human life, including their own, they plotted in secret and, with strict military discipline, kept their intentions to themselves until it was too late to stop their grim conspiracy to kill themselves and embarrass their captors at one of the most humane detention centers in the world… Read all about it and join the discussion at “How the Guantanamo suicides planned and coordinated their actions.”

The spin emanating from Washington about the three suicides at Guantanamo is mind-boggling in its cynicism -- Kafka on steroids. Vikkitikkitavi at Bells On succinctly spells out what’s at stake. And the great blog title, “Killing you is killing myself. But, you know, I'm pretty tired of both of us,” borrowed from "The Lady from Shanghai," perfectly captures the atmosphere of moral exhaustion and cynicism that surrounds Guantanamo like the smell of an overripe fruit rotting in the tropical night.
