Whats fluffy, has four paws and just might be the latest tool in the war against terror? A kitten!
Weve heard of prisoners who cooperate with authorities being rewarded with cigarettes, better food, perhaps an upgrade in digs. But in Guantanamo Bay, were told that the military brass have added pet cats to the list of perks accorded particularly helpful detainees.
At least thats what one detainees attorney thinks. Carlos Warner, a lawyer representing Muhammed Rahim, an Afghan who was a translator for Osama bin Laden, gave the Loop a brief letter from his client. That note, which was just declassified, consisted of one line: Dear Mr. Warner Majid Khan has a cat.
Khan, an alleged member of Al Qaeda who has agreed to testify against one of the chief planners of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, is considered a high-valuedetainee and was held by the CIA in a secret prison for several years before his transfer to Guantanamo.
Warner says the cat-as-reward is just an example of problems plaguing the system used to prosecute detainees, complaining that the military has shut down talks with detainees representatives. I promise that the solution is not providing kittens to those who cooperate, he told us. The solution requires an open dialogue with those of us who have close relationships with the detained.

They kill them and/or at them. Smart move, US Gov’t.
They’ll kill them and/or eat them. Smart move, US Gov’t.
Oh great! Don’t they know that they will just train them to be suicide kitties? Geesh!
How safe are these kittens? Aren't there restrictions on indoor pets under Islam?
This must be obamas “kill an American and get a kitten” entitlemrnt program.
They don’t deserve kittens, they deserve to be martyrs for their sick twisted cult. Seventy two Helen Thomases is reward enough.
We need to get them puppies. Puppies and dogs. Lots of dogs, since they love them so much.
Sex wth dogs, goats, horses, cows and donkeys is either the top or second google search in some ME countries, next to pedophilia. Not sure how kittens figure into this but be prepared for sexually destroyed kittens. These inbreds have no love for anything except for their appendage.
I’ve heard about isolated prisoners befriending a cockroad or rat.
Why grant “visiting rights” to bond with a kittie?
Obama will release them before he leaves office, anyway.
Those poor kitties!! That’s animal cruelty!! Where’s PETA on this? Not being satisfied with the number of American troops being murdered by terrorists, Obama decides to make kitties terrorist bait. If one kitty is harmed...it’s Obama’s fault plain and simple!!
Heard of kitten poker?
Pistachio Ice Cream now being cleaned-off my monitor.
Kitty's sleeping upstairs or he'd lick it off.
Must have been browsing the internet between swimming, prayers, basketball, study groups (koran), weight lifting and more prayers....where he found a report from South American jail where the inmates trained cats to transport drugs, money and messages.
LOL. I knew suicide bomber cat would show up on this thread.
Just as an aside, I read somewhere that that wasn’t scripted- the cat just wandered into the set and Brando ad-libbed that part of the scene.
