black humor, if you've got the stomach for it

Via Warren Ellis and BBC News:

'The suicides of three detainees at the US base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, amount to acts of war, the US military says.

The camp commander said... "They have no regard for life, either ours or their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation, but an act of asymmetrical warfare waged against us."'

What is wrong with this country? Clearly, it seems there is no concern for the stain on the human rights record for the US, and then people wonder "why does the rest of world hate the US?" Black humor indeed.
