Getting out of Gitmo the hard way, but maybe the ONLY way...

there will be some serious ripple effects from this...
Three detainees at the US base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have died in what appears to have been a joint suicide pact, officials said.


It is not first time detainees have attempted to commit suicide since the camp was set up four years ago.

Forty-one attempts have been made by 25 prisoners since then.

try to imagine, if you will, being held without charges or trial for four years... no contact with family, friends, or the outside world and no hope of release... under the circumstances, suicide would be the most logical alternative...
