Another Milestone Reached

Via the Beeb— because you're not going to get this story straight from the Americans— we are now having to deal with successful prisoner suicides at Camp Delta in Guantánamo, Cuba.

There have been plenty of unsuccessful suicide attempts. In fact, one of the more gruesome and hard to face facts of the American prosecution of so-called "enemy combatant" prisoners in Camp Delta is that hunger strikers have been forcibly restrained and put on I.V. drips against their will to thwart their suicide efforts. So... let's be clear. It takes real imagination to kill yourself at Camp Delta.

No doubt, the tribal regions of Far East Blogistan are, even now, gearing up to cheer on the prisoners, hoping for more suicides to come. If you find them, post links in the comments, and I'll update this post with synopses. I want to know who's going public with overt celebrations of American state-sponsored prisoner abuse resulting in the deaths of extrajudicially detained inmates.
