3 Gitmo Detainees Reportedly Hang Selves

(AP) WASHINGTON Three Guantanamo Bay detainees hanged themselves with nooses made of sheets and clothes, the commander of the detention center said Saturday.

They were the first reported deaths among the hundreds of men held at the base in Cuba — some of them for up to 4 1/2 years and without charge.

Two men from Saudi Arabia and one from Yemen were found "unresponsive and not breathing in their cells" early Saturday, according to a statement from the Miami-based U.S. Southern Command, which has jurisdiction over the prison. Attempts were made to revive the prisoners, but they failed.

"They hung themselves with fabricated nooses made out of clothes and bed sheets," Navy Rear Adm. Harry Harris told reporters in a conference call from the U.S. base in southeastern Cuba.

Pentagon officials said the three men were in Camp 1, the highest maximum security prison at Guantanamo, and that none of them had tried to commit suicide before.

You can blame the so called do gooders from the human rights commission who demanded that the detainees be allowed privacy. Had they not been, the guard would have seen what they were up to and could have prevented the suicide

I saw that, too.
Irony alert! Too darned bad that thanks to the Red Cross our troops weren't able to save these guys - next, they need to darken the windows of the prisoners on food strikes and let them hang themselves on their feeding tubes. Feeding this scum is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

How long before the MSM/DNC/Lefties (one in the same) blames Bush for keeping them their so long that "Bush forced them" to commit suicide?

Tomorrow morning on the talk shows perhaps. Can't wait for El Rushbo to take this up! :)

Living in Florida I'd rather not- that bait may end up in a fish I eat..

We do, however, have some amusing gators wandering around here of late ... perhaps after a snack from Gitmo they'd lose their taste for all things human..

He also asked the guards about the hunger strikes and was told the prisoners do that just for the LSM, the IRC and the Human rights group. As soon as they leave they go back to eating again. It is all for show.

"Wow........I can not believe anyone is thrilled about another human being commiting suicide,I think it is an awful thing"

Your compassion is commendable, why didn't you invite these 'human beings' to live at your home?

By the way you bleeding heart wuss, these three "human beings" all committed suicide in unison, which clearly shows they weren't acts of individual desperation, but were carefully plotted to give the media another high profile, (and totally bogus) 'reason' to condemn the U.S. military. NOBODY with an iota of intelligence is buying into your contrived sympathy for these beasts, so spare us all and save your crocadile tears for the DU.

Dear sir,
You need to use spell check. It would be Crocodile.
I Have NO empathy for the " cause" these bastards think is right.
My post only stated I found NO humor in a person commiting suicide.
I have lived through that situation TOO much in my life.
I did not say " whoa unto them" I said I was not pleased with the theory that people were happy that other humans commited suicide. It was a general thought.

It had nothing to do with ME siding with the Gitmo prisoners.

My thought was that gloating over suicide was NOT what God wants us to do, Period, no matter what the relgion is.

End of story.

How inhuman are the Marines? The substandared conditions these prisoners are subject to are beyond belief. The very least they could do for these Haji's is to give them some decent rope...

The article doesn't say that the three were in isolation. IMHO if they were not, suicide is an unfounded assumption. As I said before when they broke up a necktie party, it could have been others enforcing Islamic discipline.
