Suicide attempts at Gitmo 

The Associated Press is reporting that 23 inmates at Guantanamo Bay tried to commit suicide last year. They failed.

Amnesty International and other groups have their knickers in a twist about this, both substantively and over the delay in releasing this information to the press.

Of course, not only did the prisoners fail in their various attempts to kill themselves, being in Gitmo as they are there is no risk that innocent people would have died had they succeeded. Which makes these prisoners quite different from most of the suicidal Islamists that we hear about.

Just saying, is all.
