Isolated Suicide an "Act of War"?????

Guantanamo suicides 'acts of war'
"They have no regard for human life," he (base commander Navy Rear Adm. Harry Harris) said. "Neither ours nor their own. I believe this was not an act of desperation but an act of asymmetric warfare against us."
Justifies their torture, see? Illegal combatants, etc., etc., etc.

Beam me up, Scotty.

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and a few other NGOs, have designated June Torture Awareness Month. We've created a blogroll you can join if you're interested. You can find it here. The idea is that everyone is linked to from the blogroll, and in exchange, you discuss torture (as you already do), and link to the Torture Awareness site to help support the NGOs.

There's a lot of bloggers who are angry about human rights abuse in the War on Terror. If we coordinate, we can show our support and help Amnesty and HRW make Torture Awareness Month a success.
