Suicide Murder at Guantanamo

The news informs us that a fifth person imprisoned at Guantanamo has died. They call it "suicide." It's no such thing, whether the actual instrument of death was his own hand or not. No, these five deaths were murder, pure and simple. People imprisoned without charges, without trial, for an indefinite period of time. Force fed when they choose to go on hunger strikes, frequently tortured or otherwise treated harshly, these men were driven to despair, and driven to their deaths just as surely as if they had been pushed off a cliff.

"Suicide"? Hardly. These were murders. Murders committed by the same war criminals whose victims include more than a million Iraqis and thousands upon thousands of Afghans, Pakistanis, Somalis, and others.
