Id say that a prison with a suicide rate two to five times higher than normal — let alone spiking to 20 times higher than normal — has a problem. A big, festering, shitty problem. And sticking fingers in ears and chanting “theyre all terrorists, theyre in prison so they must be guilty,” is a big part of the problem.

As to how to fix the problem …

Itd be a good start if Rear Admiral Harris washed his mouth out with soap and started investigating why prisoners at Guantanamo Bay seem to think that hanging themselves is an improvement over their current situation. Itd be an even better start if his bosses in the Pentagon and the Department of Defense were arrested and sent to the Hague for trial for crimes against humanity — to wit, torture, waging illegal war, acts of terror against civilian populations, collective punishment, and most of the rest of the bill of goods that applied at Nuremburg in 1946 — but thatll have to wait.

But meanwhile, kindly reflect: if you support the war on terror, then youre also supporting a policy that has brought concentration camps back to the western world.
