Here's an interesting article detailing some of the goings on at Club Gitmo.
A Yemeni detainee, Mohammed Ali Em al-Zarnuki, warned his panel of three U.S. military officers that inmates would attempt suicide unless guards stop interrupting prayers, moving detainees during prayer time and whistling and creating other distractions.
They're going to kill themselves in retribution for whistling??? Here's another interesting anecdote:
Another detainee described how interrogators said he resembled Cuba Gooding Jr., and later brought him photos of the star because the detainee had never heard of the actor.
So the guards brought a detainee pictures of an American movie star. Interesting, I suppose, but hardly earth shaking news. Finally, the article concludes by describing how an Algerian detainee throws feces at and spits on guards he doesn't like. Charming people, these Muslim detainees. To me, though, the real kicker is the AP headline for this story:

Guantanamo detainees tell of abuses

You have GOT to be kidding me.
